Mayor Kemp stated, “We are thrilled to welcome the public to our new city hall in the heart of downtown Hopkinsville. We are also quite pleased to be able to incorporate the talents of so many local artists within the building.”
The Hopkinsville Municipal Center is a 31,169-square-foot facility that houses the offices of City Administration, the Hopkinsville Human Relations Commission, and Community & Development Services (formerly known as the Planning Commission).
Also on display throughout the center are twenty-one photographs of winning images from the city’s recent photo contest depicting local cityscapes. Another art installation in the building’s vestibule features the work of fourteen student participants in the Hopkinsville Art Guild’s summer Youth Art Camp.
