Aug 25–Oct 28, 2018

Every weekend, from August 25 through October 28, Open Spaces visitors can explore a variety of art offerings at the Village in Swope Park. Take in a dance or music performance, grab a snack, enjoy family activities or browse through the pavilions designed by some of Kansas City’s finest architects. Although we’re thinking globally, we’re focused locally and welcome Kansas City makers to participate in this unique experience.
