The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has designated Paducah the world's seventh City of Crafts and Folk Art for the City's important role in the connectivity of cultures particularly through quilting. Home of the National Quilt Museum, the largest quilt and fiber art museum in the world which showcases breathtaking exhibitions in nearly 30,000 square feet of contemporary gallery space. Visitors from around the world marvel at the artistry of the Museum’s 320-piece collection of contemporary quilts and ever changing touring and thematic exhibitions that celebrate traditional and nontraditional quiltmaking methods. The Museum collection features a vast array of fiber art by internationally renowned quilt artists including French quilter Inge Mardal, Shirley P. Kelley and Sue Benner.
The St. Louis Post Dispatch praised the Museum, noting that “it’s not that different than going to the art museum in Chicago...it's all so unexpected.” The Museum has also received praise in dozens of national publications including Forbes, The Wall Street Journal and Southern Living.
