LowerTown….An Artist Community

12 years ago, Paducah’s Artist Relocation Program brought artists  from other states to the neglected area of LowerTown with the idea the area needed to be revitalized. LowerTown had been neglected.  The result was artists, in numbers larger than anticipated, came to live and create in this area.  Homes were restored, new homes were built, galleries were opened, and an artist community was born.

These photos of mine are to remind myself of the whimsy and creativity of the area….WP_20140823_031WP_20140823_034WP_20140823_036 WP_20140823_039WP_20140823_030WP_20140823_043WP_20140823_049WP_20140823_051
