Mention the Carson Center to Gavin Smith and his big, brown eyes light up almost as brightly as the lights on Broadway in New York City.

Looking for something fun to do New Year's evening before you hit the big party? The Paducah Wastelanders, a group of regional artists who are either native or long time residents of the Paducah area will be hosting their 7th annual New Year’s Eve Art Exhibition of new artwork and celebration at the Yeiser Art Center in the Market House (2nd and Broadway) in downtown Paducah, Kentucky.
