Come to the 29th UNplaza Art Fair: Sept. 21-22, 2019

Artwork by local artists—with prices ranging from low to high—beckons you to PeaceWorks’ annual fundraiser, the UNplaza Art Fair, Sept. 21-22.

From paintings to pottery to purses, from sculpture to stained glass, you’ll find irresistible treasures. Do you want a new hat? Look no further! Do you crave a scarf or baubles, bangles, and beads? Come to the fair! You’ll also find photos, greeting cards, woodwork, leather products, and more.

Our fair benefits first the artists—to whom we are grateful!—and then PeaceWorks.

The fair is open Saturday, Sept. 21 from 10 am to 6 pm, and Sunday, Sept. 22, from 10 am to 5 pm.

Our location this year is Southmoreland Park (same as 2018), just to the west of the Nelson-Atkins Museum, between Oak St. and Warwick Blvd.
