"Kansas City 2020"
April 30th through June 26th, 2020

EXHIBITION DATES: MAY 1 - JUNE 25, 2020

FIRST FRIDAY RECEPTION: FRIDAY, MAY 1, 2020, 6PM - 9PM 

For the second year, Buttonwood Art Space is excited to partner with KC Parks & Recreation on this special exhibition featuring works of Kansas City, it's icons, sports teams, jazz themes, and beautiful cityscapes!  All things "Kansas City" will be considered for this exhibition. Artworks may include paintings, photographs, 3D pieces and much more!  This show is open to all artists and mediums. 

Over the years, we've found that people who live in Kansas City love to own artwork of our beautiful city. With new art patrons visiting Buttonwood every day, we expect a great turnout for this show!

Each art purchase will benefit our city's beautiful parks with 50% of net sales benefiting KC Parks & Recreation and the remaining 50% going directly to artists! 

As part of KC Parks' "Walktober" series in October 2019, 2 "Quick Paints" were hosted, producing wonderful works of Cliff Drive and historic Old Red Bridge in Minor Park (also known as Kansas City's love lock bridge). Winning pieces are automatically accepted into the show, and you'll definitely want to see these in person! 

KC Parks' mission is to improve the quality of life, health and wellness of our community by providing socially equitable, community-driven programming and environmentally sound natural resource management. The department maintains 221 parks, 12,242 acres of parkland, 159 miles of trails and bikeways, 29 lakes, hundreds of athletic fields and tennis courts, 106 playgrounds, and five public golf courses. 

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: APRIL 1, 2020 BY 4PM
