The UNplaza Art Fair, September 21 and 22, is a benefit for PeaceWorks-KC and local artists -- more than 130 artists with a mix of crafts, paintings, jewelry, and more at Southmoreland Park, Oak Street and Cleaver, in Kansas City, Missouri.
Local artists and top-quality, affordable art will again be the focus of PeaceWorks-KC’s 29th annual UNplaza Art Fair, slated for 10a.m.-6p.m., Saturday, Sept. 21, and 10a.m.-5p.m., Sunday, Sept. 22.
A tent city of some 100+ artists will be onsite at Southmoreland Park, immediately west of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, between Oak Street and Warwick Boulevard. All proceeds go to the artists and peace-related projects, such as conflict resolution training for the Urban Ranger Corps of KC, MO; support for The Learning Club of KC, KS; and peace studies awards for Avila University students.
Thousands of original artworks will be for sale at the event, including ceramics, jewelry, glass art, wood carving, mixed media, fiber art, photography, and paintings.
