Janice Mason Art Museum board member Paul Fourshee said he used to be on the KAC board and found out about the meetings because he was still on the e-mail list. He said he noticed, though, that that the Oct. 15 Russellville meeting was the one farthest west in the state. Fourshee said he wrote an e-mail to protest because not only would Cadiz residents have to drive an hour to attend, but people in Paducah would have to drive nearly two hours if they wanted to take part.
“What kind of ‘community’ is it if someone has to drive hours to go?” Fourshee said.
Fourshee said he must not have been the only one to complain, and that he was soon informed that they would like to meet in Cadiz. He said he thought it would be a good chance for artists in the community or people interested in the arts to let the KAC what they like and what they would like to see. He said the meetings would be helpful because some areas of the state might have vastly different needs than other parts. He encouraged all members of the public, not just those involved with the museum, to attend.
