We live in a city overflowing with local talent. Known for amazing food, Midwestern friendliness, rapid growth and a booming art scene, KC embodies a diverse community that makes this town so special.
You see this everywhere with the emergence of more craft eats and drinks, local boutiques and murals popping up across town. The color, creativity and fun comprise the personality that is KC!
MAKE YOUR HOUSE A HOME
We tour amazing homes every day. The ones that standout most are those filled with character and personality. Often character is in the form of period architecture and design elements. But, it can be added to ANY house through design choices and décor! Showcasing things you love, unique items and a bit of color will make your house a HOME.
We enjoyed this post on Made in KC Explore that features a group of vibrant local artists – JCDS Emerging Artists – a program started by Johnson County Developmental Supports and then expanded to the Art and Heritage Center. Take a minute to give it a quick read and learn more about this group that shows art locally! According to the blog, their next appearance will be in September at the De Soto Sunflower Art Fest.
GALLERIES AND SHOWS
If you haven’t, check out First Fridays in the Crossroads (tomorrow!), it’s another great opportunity to shop local art. Or, visit the many galleries around the metro, or make your own! There’s nothing more personal than showcasing art made by your family. This can be art made at home, school or at a studio, like Wolf Creek Art Studio. Use your art for a standout gallery wall, like this one from the Braden’s Hope Home Tour in The Farm at Garnett Hill in May!
