|The Brush Creek Art WalkJuly 27, 28 & 29, 2012
Brush Creek Walkways, Roanoke to Elmwood
Sunrise to Sunset
Come out and Walk the Walkways while Musicians Play and Painters Paint! The inaugural Brush Creek Art Walk event–which begins Friday, July 27 and runs through Sunday, July 29–is free and open to the public. Each day from sunrise to sunset 50 artists will be painting “en plein air” or live on site along the newly renovated Brush Creek Parkway, an almost continuous trail of lush tree lined walks, fountains, and sculptures stretching over four miles from East to West.
Painters will have three days to complete paintings on-site along the creek. Artists will enter their finished paintings for a chance to show in the Gallery of Art at UMKC in an exhibit that opens on August 23, 2012.
For years Brush Creek has cut it’s pathway through the lush grounds surrounding the Country Club Plaza, and the Nelson Atkin’s Museum and Art Gallery. Come out and be part of what hopes to become a tradition of the arts in Kansas City with the Brush Creek Art Walk: A Painting Competition
