Art Garden KC
Art Garden KC is a weekly outdoor art festival ran by artists, for artists. We are a non-profit program under the umbrella of The Arts Asylum. Our mission is to provide artists and makers a low-cost, low-barrier location to sell their work, create and perform while simultaneously supporting art education and neighborhood tourism.
Because our founders are artists themselves, we understand how important it is to have your work seen without paying expensive costs to vend at art fairs. Therefore we keep our costs low to vend at our outdoor events! Our operation costs are funded from grants, donors and sponsors. We also host occasional indoor pop-ups in area businesses, that may or may not require a curation and/or vending fee, to cover rental costs.
Our free outdoor event season runs from April to October, every Sunday from 11am-4pm (weather permitting). Visitors can find a range of art from paintings, jewelry, ceramics, clothing to zines, macramé, decor and so on. Other types of vendor specialties include chakra/energy healing, face painting, spirit paintings, caricatures, authors and more. Vendors change every weekend, so there’s always something new to see and do.
Visitors can also experiences live art demonstrations, art lessons, children’s activities, live music, open mic, theatre and performing arts.
Interested vendors can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
