The Festive Circuit Of Art Fairs

Every year, a cadre of visual artists joins with live musicians for a festival of food, photography, sculpture and more on the Country Club Plaza. 

On Friday's Up to Date, we take a look at the business side of the Plaza Art Fair. We discuss the fair’s long history, what it takes to plan an event like this and hear what it’s like to be a traveling artist who lives on the art fair circuit.

Guests:

  • Gayle Terry, director of marketing, Country Club Plaza
  • Chris Dahlquist, artist
  • Lynn Whipple, artist

Up To Date Plaza Art Fair
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
