I noticed that the people returning their hard hats after taking a tour of SKyPAC always seemed to have a little extra sparkle in their eyes. Curious as to what I might be missing, I took another opportunity to find out and joined a few Orchestra Kentucky members on their tour of the building guided by Erin Biggers. Erin is SKyPAC’s Marketing & Development Associate, who does a great job telling the SKyPAC story which helps to bring the facility to life.
We headed toward the back of the building and entered via a door into the main hall. As we each took a second to note our footing, we slowly stepped into a large, beautiful space. You can’t help grabbing hold of your hard hat as you instinctively look up towards the ceiling. An overwhelming feeling of reverence comes over you as the reflection from the tin ceiling tiles catch your eye, illuminating all of the enriching elements coming together to complete the space. Over the past two months the facade has slowly transformed; bricks are being laid, the front columns are starting to take shape and the siding is almost complete.
Each day, a transformation takes place on site as the vision of SKyPAC takes shape. This space will for sure open the eyes of many — it is one-of-a-kind in our community. If you have not yet taken a tour of the site, please DO! It is a unique experience that will definitely give you goose bumps just imagining the exciting things that are just around the corner.
Tours are available until December 9th for groups of 10 or more. Contact Erin Biggers at 270-393-0080 to schedule your tour today!
