TowerEast arts district

Postby moderne » Thu Nov 02, 2017 1:29 pm

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

Glad there is finally some creative momentum east of Gillham and over to 31/Troost. Slowly but surely, it will happen.

How long will we have to wait for the El Torreon to become the performance space/art venue/food hall/neighborhood center that Union Hill deserves? Man I would love to see something great happen there...

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 also lives heated with a woodstove and sleeping bed in the showroom window; a place that sells expensive glass pipes and cannabis oils. Creative people looking for spaces with cheap rent in rundown buildings.
