What’s Happening in the Kansas Art World? 11-20-15

With arts funding under constant attack at a state level, it’s more important than ever to call attention to the growing Kansas Art World. Spreading the art news across Kansas and building a bridge between art communities in our state will always be the first goal.

As an artist myself, the impact and the future of the arts is personal- I know it is for you as well. Thus, Kansas Artist is taking a more personal approach to spreading the arts….giving you an opportunity to “Tell your story”.

Watch for details….

News is delivered every Friday. Deadline for weekly news submissions is every Thursday at 5pm.

That being said…
