Open Spaces: Kansas City Art Experience
August 25 - October 28
Imagine Kansas City’s own contemporary visual and performing artists joining their national and international counterparts in transforming our city into an ever-evolving arts experience. For nine weeks, in spaces both familiar and new, in parks and urban spaces, in galleries, performance halls and outdoor stages — Open Spaces will transform Kansas City into a living cultural tapestry into which the best of the world’s collective imagination can be woven.
With Swope Park as the hub, works by more than 40 visual artists in a wide range of media will be installed throughout the city. The entire exhibition can be enjoyed over a couple of days, if you’re visiting the city. If you’re lucky enough to live here, you can get to know Open Spaces over the course of two months and participate in an ongoing program of activities.
Every weekend, from August 25 through October 28, Open Spaces visitors can explore a variety of art offerings at the Village in Swope Park. Take in a dance or music performance, grab a snack, enjoy family activities or browse through the pavilions designed by some of Kansas City’s finest architects. Although we’re thinking globally, we’re focused locally and welcome Kansas City makers to participate in this unique experience.
Don’t miss the OPEN SPACES: ART PARTY to kick-off Open Spaces on August 24th.
