March First Friday Reception & Trolley Tour
Sponsored by ArtsKC-Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City
The reception kicks off at 5:30 in the historic Livestock Exchange Bank, which is located on the second floor of The Livestock Exchange Building. Enjoy live music, creative catering by Moxie, and wine compliments of The Marquee Lounge at AMC.
Tour the historic building, as well as several studios located within it. Andrew Lyles, curator of the Spray Booth Gallery, is transforming the Livestock Exchange Bank vault into a mini gallery, and the Kansas City Art Institute Animation Department will be exhibiting three projection reels of work in the bank teller window bay.
Then head across the street for a private opening at the brand new Bill Brady Gallery and tour PLUG Projects, both located on Genessee.
After experiencing all that the Stockyards District has to offer, guests can take the Hello Art Trolley to visit galleries in the Crossroads Arts District. The first trolley departs at 6:15 and will make multiple loops throughout the evening.
After the tour, feel free to return to the Livestock Exchange Building for a nightcap and meet local artists while listening to the sounds of local musicians.
