You've heard all about the growth of The Stockyards District in the news...this is your chance to see it in person! Join us for a very special Hello Art First Friday Reception & Trolley Tour on March 2 from 5:30-9 p.m.
The reception kicks off at 5:30 in the historic Livestock Exchange Bank, which is located on the second floor of The Livestock Exchange Building. Enjoy live music, creative catering by Moxie, and wine compliments of The Marquee Lounge at AMC.
Andrew Lyles, curator of the Spray Booth Gallery, is transforming the Livestock Exchange Bank vault into a mini gallery, and the Kansas City Art Institute Animation Department will be exhibiting three projection reels of work in the bank teller window bay. Guests are also welcome to explore the open studios of LEB artists Maria Creyts, Beth Sauer and Gary Walden.
Then head across the street for a private opening at the brand new Bill Brady Gallery and tour PLUG Projects, both located on Genessee.
After experiencing all that the Stockyards District has to offer, guests can take the Hello Art Trolley to visit galleries in the Crossroads Arts District. The first trolley departs at 6:15 and will make multiple loops throughout the evening.
After the tour, feel free to return to the Livestock Exchange Building for a nightcap and meet local artists while listening to the sounds of local musicians.
