The mission of the Paducah Arts Alliance (PAA) is to promote our growth as artists and as a creative community through a vibrant Artist in Residence Program. Any profession requires constant education and the stimulation of new ideas as well as exposure to others in the field. This is more easily done in a larger city where the number of galleries, museums, colleges, artists, exhibitions, etc are a constant source. PAA strives to connect cultures and bring the world to the UNESCO Creative City of Paducah, Kentucky!
