The Kentucky Center for Native American Arts and Culture (KCNAAC) proposes to build an educational and interpretive Center!
The purpose of the KCNAAC is to honor, celebrate and recognize Native American peoples' heritage and contributions to the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the Ohio River Valley region, and other contiguous states. One important way to accomplish this is to tell the peoples' stories, and these stories vividly live in Native American song, dance, theatre, and visual arts.
The Center will be built on 85 acres overlooking the Ohio River within General Butler State Resort Park in Carrollton, Kentucky. It will house areas for permanent and traveling exhibits, a library with a research archive, an auditorium suitable for theatre and lectures, classrooms, and an art gallery and gift shop. Outdoor facilities will include an amphitheater for dance and performance, herbal and native plant gardens, nature trails, and a picnic area.
The KCNAAC is designed to facilitate interactive education and interpretation centered around Native American history and cultures through the arts.
Our Photo Tour is organized into albums which let you see what a beautiful landscape the Center is to be built upon, look at different architectural renderings, observe our Board in action, and read our Newsletter for progress updates.
