The PeaceWorks KC Local Art Fair (formerly the UNplaza Art Fair) will continue as scheduled on Sept. 26-27. Due to current COVID-19 realities and our responsibility to the broader community, the fair will not be held in person at Southmoreland Park. This year, the art fair will be a virtual event you can access through this website.
The live online event will take place Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 26-27, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. During those times you can chat with artists, view the art, and purchase the art online. At other times during those days and for a few days following Sept. 27, you can continue to shop and purchase art without interacting with the artists.
We do want to be supportive of the artist community that has been so supportive of us and is no doubt struggling in these pandemic times. The art fair is PeaceWorks’ only fundraising event. This year, getting the word out is crucial as we move from an onsite event to a virtual event. Please help us spread the word “through the grapevine” and post info on social media, etc., as we approach Sept. 26-27.
Additional information will be relayed via US mail and emails, with updates on our website as details are finalized for this year’s online art fair.
