Artist Relocation Incentives

  • Zoned for live/work spaces. This enables residents to have gallery/studio, restaurant/café, living, and other mixed uses.
  • Properties available for as little as $1 to qualifying proposals.

Qualifying emphasizes sustainability. Paducah Main Street seeks artists that have achieved some notoriety in the art world. Qualified candidates are identified as persons in the field of art using a successful art business model. The artist must be able to demonstrate that their business produces sufficient sales and clients to support the artist while living/working in Paducah, KY. Special consideration will be granted to galleries and businesses that are "open to the public" and maintain a minimum number of "open" hours. Considerations may be given to artists that commit to making substantial contributions to the community through workshops or other highly desirable projects.
