Avenue of the Arts opening reception cancelled
The Avenue of the Arts opening reception planned for May 16 at the Folly Theatre, 1020 Central St., has been cancelled and will be replaced by a closing reception this fall. An exact date, time and location have yet to be determined.
The Avenue of the Arts will still display artists’ work between May and October this year at several locations along Central Street, Kansas City’s Avenue of the Arts.
The Avenue of the Arts program is an annual summer exhibition of temporary public artwork created by six regional artists. Works are selected by a panel comprised of art professionals and business and community representatives. The exhibition provides a unique opportunity for area artists to gain direct experience with the development and installation of art in the public environment.
