El Sung Na: Enchanting Tales of Animals an Aspirations
Vivid childhood memories are a creative wellspring for award-winning children’s book author Il Sung Na, who arrived in Kansas City five years ago to teach illustration at the Kansas City Art Institute.
The expressive sculptor, currently a resident at the Belger Arts Center, has work in this summer's "Women to Watch" exhibit at Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and is on for a 2023 solo show in New York.
Kansas City’s creative energy never flags. Currently the field of documentary filmmaking has moved front and center, with new works by local producers racking up awards and screenings, thanks in part to the support of local institutions.
