The Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center
Located in a historic downtown neighborhood, the Performing Arts Center is the cultural anchor of a redevelopment district. The 1,800 seat multi-purpose proscenium theater has a movable acoustical ceiling and wall panels within the stage house to accommodate a wide variety of performances from large-scale traveling productions to symphonic orchestra performances. The striking glass lobby is a story of local pride. The Tulip Poplar, Kentucky’s state tree, is featured in the custom-fabric wall covering and one-of-a-kind chandelier, while the Goldenrod-patterned carpet pays tribute to the state flower.
