Arts & Culture

In an area steeped with heritage, it’s only natural that a vibrant arts scene would emerge to capture the minds and imaginations of residents and visitors. Clarksville's diversity and the presence of Austin Peay State University bring an even greater depth to the cultural experience. Amid the sculptures, murals, exhibits, theatre, and music, you'll likely have the opportunity to interact with local artists. Hang out for a bit at the Downtown Artists Co-Op, the Roxy Regional Theatre, the Customs House Museum or an Austin Peay gallery and be inspired by the creativity...and the creators. 

Clarksville's historic architecture sets us apart from most cities our size. Walk a few blocks through downtown, look around, look up and experience the strong sense of place that emanates from the spires and steeples, the cornices, arches, gargoyles, knockers, and fountains. Gorgeous antebellum homes have fueled the dreams of many. Maybe you'll rediscover a passion, or develop a new pursuit.
