“Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment is the largest privately owned arts facility in the United States. With a focus on visual arts, this huge historic factory building has been redeveloped into 148 working studios for more than 200 artists and makers, 6 fine art galleries, a multi-use theatre, and performance venues.
Within this thriving creative community are artists and makers from across the world. The Mill serves as a space where they can create, learn, and collaborate. With studio spaces lining the hallways, visitors have the opportunity to openly explore the Mill and artist spaces where they can shop and learn about the artists and their works. In addition to working artists, Lowe Mill is home to several of North Alabama’s premier entertainment events including Concerts on the Dock, the world’s longest running Cigar Box Guitar Festival, and more. This historic arts center provides its community—both in- and outside the Mill—with a space to gain knowledge and hands-on experience in various mediums and forms, a place to fully immerse in an originative environment, ultimately making arts, entertainment, and culture accessible to those who visit this vibrant facility.”
