The Paducah Artist-in-Residence Program is a collaborative effort between the Paducah Arts Alliance and the City of Paducah, working to create a permanent and progressive artist in residence program. The mission of the residency is to promote the growth of artists and of the arts community, providing artists with a community arts space in which to collaborate, educate and create. The residency program is made possible through funding from a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Paducah Renaissance Alliance. The residency space is located in the heart of LowerTown Paducah, providing walking access to a number of local artist galleries and studios, as well as Downtown Paducah with a variety of arts venues including the Yeiser Art Center, Maiden Alley Cinema, the Carson Center, the National Quilt Museum, and the Paducah School of Art.
A creative culture abounds in Paducah. High-quality, diverse art forms are illuminated by Paducah's elegant sophistication and vibrant history. Visitors from across the globe marvel at the artistry of The National Quilt Museum Collection quilts and curated original themed exhibits. Guests to the LowerTown Arts District have the opportunity to participate in hands-on creative workshops with resident artists, hear personal stories of how they relocated to Paducah and enjoy a variety of objets d'art. Yeiser Art Center, located in the historic Market House, features quality works by established and emerging artists from across the globe. The nearby Maiden Alley Cinema hosts weekend viewings of independent and classic films as well as an international film festival. Paducah's engaging selection of cultural offerings in the performing arts includes the Paducah Symphony Orchestra, Market House Theatre and the Carson Center.
The Paducah Arts Alliance is made up of a group of artists dedicated to maintaining a fresh and interesting perspective in Paducah's LowerTown Arts District.
