Art Views: Creativity and Culture in Kansas City


-

Artists of color, immigrant or refugee artists, LGBTQ artists, artists working through mental health struggles all bring unique perspectives to the discussion of culture and creativity. No Divide KC presents a new documentary featuring local artists who represent multiple facets of our metro community. This feature-length film explores the motivations behind and the rewards gleaned from creating artistic work through the varied lenses of these artists.

The featured participants use their creative output for different reasons. Some are professionals in their field, some are politically motivated and others discover and preserve cultural connections via art. Three exhibitions, at different library branches, feature artwork from the participants while the video segments are on display. Join us for a reception with live performances, talkback and a screening of an excerpt from the film.
