Haw Contemporary celebrates 10 years in Kansas City with a huge art exhibition
The "Decade" exhibition at Haw Contemporary art gallery in the West Bottoms will feature new and old works from over 40 artists to commemorate its first decade in business.
In the beginning, Haw wasn't sure it would be a good idea. A decade later, the move proved successful.
"At first it was more about, how do you be a good steward of what John O'Brien had created with the Dolphin and don't mess it up," Haw told KCUR's Up To Date. "Then little by little, there was a little more freedom to kind of put a little bit different stamp on it."
Haw Contemporary is celebrating its decade in business with a new exhibition called "Decade," which will feature new and older work from over 40 artists, including Lisa Grossman, Julie Blackmon, and Archie Scott Gobber.
