We're Easy to Find
The Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea is conveniently located at 200 Artisan Way, Berea, KY. We are situated alongside Interstate 75 at exit 77, just 40 miles south of Lexington, KY, and only 2.5 miles from downtown Berea, designated the "Folk Arts and Craft Capital of Kentucky" by the Kentucky Legislature. Directions.

(NOTE: Our address changed from 975 Walnut Meadow Road to 200 Artisan Way in February 2011 because our entrance road was changed and newly named during highway construction. Many mapping sites and services do not yet include our new street or provide inaccurate directions. Our high rise sign on site is visible from Interstate-75 at Berea exit 77.)
