Welcome to Arts Alive! KC. Come join us at one of our monthly events. Among the visual events we have attended are the major museums(Nelson, Kemper and Nerman), galleries in the Crossroads(Sherry Leedy, Leedy-Voulkos Art Center, Blue Gallery, Weinberger Gallery, Todd Weiner Gallery, the Bauer Building Galleries) and artists studios (Studios Inc, Livestock Exchange Building, Warren Rosser’s studio, Mike Lyon’s studio). We also frequently visit both the Belger Art Center and the Belger Crane Yard and Haw Contemporary in the West Bottoms. We frequently visit private art collections throughout the community.
The second part of each evening is a ticketed event where we attend the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, the Folly Theater, the Kansas City Repertory, the Unicorn, the Metropolitan Ensemble Theater, Yardley Hall, Knuckleheads, Missie Bs, the American Jazz Museum, the Living Room and Musical Heritage Theater at Crown Center.
Each event has a light reception catered by a variety of restaurants and caterers throughout the city. However, it is recommended that our patrons have something to eat prior to the event since it is a cocktail reception with light snacks and hors d’oeuvere.
All of our events are priced at $30.00 and we usually have between 80-125 in attendance each month. We have approximately 1500 on our mailing list. All announcements are through our website or monthly emails to our membership which is free and only requires a current email address.
