ABOUT LOWER TOWN
“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
LTAMF is now a program and fundraiser for the Yeiser Art Center (YAC), a 501c3 non-profit arts organization founded in 1957.
Located in Downtown Paducah, just a few blocks away from the festival, YAC hosts annual exhibitions in its gallery, has a five week summer art camps program in partnership with MAKE, and puts on various fine arts events like the LTAMF, Paducah Fall Fiber Festival, and art activities in partnership with Paducah Parks Department. It also maintains a permanent collection of over 200 art objects, including a drawing by Mary Cassatt, a print by Francisco Goya to paintings by Mary Yeiser and Harlan Hubbard.
The Mission of the Lower Town Arts & Music Festival is to introduce the art, music and food of our region for the purpose of cultural enrichment and economic growth. We believe all the arts play a major role in shaping the lives of the people of Paducah and it’s surrounding area. The Festival creates an experiential learning opportunity through accessibility, entertainment, and inclusiveness, allowing festival goers to become familiar with the regional arts and to encourage their support through attendance and patronage. AND, the festival is a fundraiser for the Yeiser Art Center! Donations and money earned from the festival directly benefit this nonprofit arts organization.
