On Wednesday, October 27th, at 10:00 a.m., Arts of Southern Kentucky will honor Judge-Executive Michael O. Buchanon with a reception and plaque unveiling on behalf of the citizens of Southern Kentucky in recognition of his role in securing funding for the continued operations of the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC).
Arts of Southern Kentucky President and CEO Jeff Reed said, “Acknowledging Judge Buchanon’s role in obtaining significant funding for SKyPAC’s continued operations is long overdue. It is not an overstatement to say that the building would not be open, but for Buchanon’s leadership. It is highly unusual for a county executive to be so supportive of the arts. The plaque on the front of the building is a small way to show our community’s gratitude, but I hope that it will serve as a timeless reminder of the impact the judge has made on the arts in our region.”
