Coalesce: To Come Together To Form a Whole
On Saturday, November 7, 2020 from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., Kansas City and beyond is invited to virtually join with The Kansas City Artists Coalition for a glorious evening in celebrating the fusion of art and fashion.
Styled by WIaa Style, Coalesce is an immersive art experience where fashion and fine art come together in a breath taking collaboration celebrating fine art on the runway. Guests will safely experience how eight local Kansas City artists transform gowns into walking canvasses of fine art with a virtual experience unlike any other.
This year, Coalesce will be held virtually and with a twist. In the weeks leading up to Coalesce, guests will be invited to guest talks, artful experiences and more. Stay tuned for more details on how to join in and get involved. Special thanks to our partners and sponsors The Gown Gallery, WIaa Style and the KC Streetcar.
