Re: TowerEast arts district

Wanderfest was strangely interesting. A dozen sites between 31st and Linwood east of Gillham. Some highlights were a ceramic studio where she makes sculptures of oversized magnolias and porcelain firearms christmas trees selling for thousands; a workspace of a childrens book illustrator where he als...

TowerEast arts district

According to KC Studio magazine the area around 31st and Cherry has been rebranded as TowerEast, the hottest new arts district in town. Consists not of galleries, but actual makers of art.
There will be a festival with art food and music on Sunday November 5 from noon to 6p.m. called Wanderfest

Re: Misc Crossroads News
