West Bottoms Reborn project explores its history
The City’s Office of Culture and Creative Services is partnering with PLUG Projects and Kansas City Design Center to bring internationally-renowned artist Julie Schenkelberg to help promote “West Bottoms Reborn,” a project supported by the National Endowment for the Arts Our Town Grant. Schenkelberg will use local materials that accent the rich history of the West Bottoms to create a unique exhibit that will be on view at PLUG Projects starting Sept. 15 and running through Oct. 28. This installation and related programming are part of a series of public engagements titled “Honoring History and Place,” designed to honor the West Bottoms. The public is invited to join us for these free events, which include a scavenger hunt and a family program.
