Pendleton Art Center

The Pendleton Art Center was created by the Verdin Company to give artists a space to create and exhibit their work. The building, which was once a warehouse, was converted to studios that are available to artists of all disciplines and there are over 200 artists at this location alone. The center participates in Final Friday and Second Look Saturday where artists open up their studios to the public to display and sell their work. Guided tours are available and there are art centers located in Ashland Kentucky, Rising Sun Indiana, and Middletown Ohio as well.

The 8-floor warehouse was built in 1909 and used by the Krohn-Fecheimer Shoe Company. It later served as the main warehouse for Shillito's Department Store and was purchased in 1991 by The Verdin Company for use as a facility to support local artists.
