Tomorrow evening is the official debut of the America: Now and Here traveling multimedia art extravaganza. I had the good fortune to get a sneak peek at some of the exhibit tonight at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center and I was blown away at the quality and variety of art on display.
The exhibition will remain in Kansas City through May 28th and there's a full schedule of free special events that includes music performances, movies, demonstrations, hands-on art activities, yoga classes and much more.
Here are some of the photos I took this evening. I apologize for not making note of most of the artists' names, but I hope you'll get the chance to come and see them yourself.
These sculptures are by Kansas City artist Peregrine Honig.
If you get a chance to experience America: Now and Here either in Kansas City or as it travels around the U.S., definitely take advantage of it! Just look for the distinctive 18-wheelers.
Disclosure: I got the chance to check out this exhibit early because of my company's relationship to the event. However, my opinions are my own.
