The price for this unique experience is only $25.00. This is a deal folks. We live an hour from the city and drive up for these events.
Let me share our last outing. The group went on an art crawl in the West Bottoms. The first stop on our journey was Amigoni Urban Winery. We tried a sample of their wine with snacks and picked up our main event ticket. Main event tickets are always at the first venue stop.
|Amigoni's vineyards are located near Warrensburg, Missouri. They make their|
wines in The Drover Telegraph Building in the West Bottoms.
The next stop was the Bill Brady Gallery which is next door to the winery.
|The Bill Brady Gallery has a wonderful space for showing large and small works. It is a|
great use for a west bottom abandoned building.

After we ate and enjoyed the galleries at Dolphin, there was one more gallery to visit before going to the main event. This was PLUG Projects.
"PLUG PROJECTS is a curatorial collaboration by four Kansas City artists who share the mission of bringing fresh perspectives and conversation to the local art community. Our goal is to energize artists and the public at large by exhibiting challenging new work, initiating critical dialogue, and expanding connections of artists in Kansas City as part of a wider, national network of artists."-quoted from the PLUG Project website.
Our last and main event was two hours of live jazz with Megan Birdsall and some of the best jazz musicians in KC. It was held at the former R bar now run by Moxie Catering.

What's Happening This Month
On Friday December 17th, Arts Alive is having a double venue. We will start out at Studio and home of Jason Pollen, former head of the fiber department of Kansas City Art Institute and then will head over to the Unicorn Theater to see "Inspecting Carol". There will be only 70 tickets up for grabs. Private resident viewings always have about half the regular amount of tickets available. This outing will sell out quickly. If you want to go, act fast. I already have my tickets! May sure you have a PayPal account. It is the only way to pay for Arts Alive events.
Visit the Arts Alive website to read all about the group and check out the event for yourself. It is a great all around art experience.
There is no membership fee or meetings to attend, (unless you want to volunteer for the board). You just need to buy a ticket and go.
