Paducah Power System and the City of Paducah are inviting artists living and working in Western Kentucky to apply for the Art Utility Box program, "powerART"! As part of the City’s initiatives for beautification, community development, and need for public art – we have partnered with Paducah Power System to create visual paintings that connect and encourage the vibrancy and culture of Paducah by using Paducah Power’s utility boxes. The utility box art program is designed to enhance and grow upon Paducah’s character and culture. The utility boxes are located in Noble Park near Lake Gerry B. Montgomery.
