Looking for something to do tonight? It’s First Friday, and we’ve compiled a few highlights from our calendar to check out while you’re out in the Crossroads/downtown area.
Visit the Mattie Rhodes Art Center‘s opening reception for Los Colores de la Vida, a show that “explores the complex social issues of our time while fostering a dialogue that promotes compassion & understanding.” At 6:30pm, Christo Rey students will perform their own poems and songs inspired by the No Place for Hate campaign, and at 8pm Making Movies will be playing some songs.
Stop by the Belger Arts Center and see the continuing exhibition of drawings by Terry Allen, whose sculpture, Modern Communication, sits in front of Kansas City’s Police and Fire Department Communication Center Building. Read Porter Arneill’s write-up about this piece.
