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 in partnership with the Johnson County Library proudly present a new new documentary called Art Views: Creativity and Culture in Kansas City. This multi-part film features local artists who represent multiple facets of our metro community and explores the motivations behind and the rewards gleaned from creating artistic work through the varied lenses of these artists.

These artists 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 visual artists who are interviewed. Each branch will host a reception with live performances, talkback and a screening of an excerpt from the film.
