Our town is rich in music and theatre, dance, design and all kinds of visual art. From the very beginning, Kansas City’s embrace of the arts has helped make this a truly special place—the “Paris of the Plains” as it was sometimes described.
Now it seems that the 21st Century is more active than ever. In the summer edition of KCPT’s seasonal arts magazine, hosts Randy Mason and Steph Suetos will focus on outdoor activities that typically bloom in the heat, including Starlight Theatre and Shakespeare In the Park. They’ll also explore the continuing growth of the Crossroads Arts District, which draws large crowds to its annual 18th Street Fashion Show.
Look for pieces on the wonders of Powell Gardens, a mural-painting project in downtown KCK, the “art” of fireworks displays and a profile of a man who’s made a name playing his music for youngsters—Jim “Mr. Stinky Feet” Cosgrove. Plus much more of the people, places and products that make this Uniquely Kansas City.
