On June 4th over 650 people gathered on the Kansas City Art Institute campus for a night of art, food, and fun at the biennial Art & Design Auction. Guests enjoyed live music with DJ vibes, big band sounds, costumed performers, creative fare, and artisanal cocktails. Hundreds of stunning artworks donated by alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the college were available in a silent and live auction. Proceeds benefit Kansas City Art Institute students by providing the opportunity to define their voice, hone their craft, and make an impact through art and design.
