April First Friday Showcase

Katrina Revenaugh


Located at the epicenter of the First Fridays movement on the corner of Southwest Blvd and Baltimore, ArtsKC’s Crossroads home gives us the exciting opportunity to showcase our sponsors and local performers at one of the nation’s largest, free art walks. This translates into an exciting opportunity for you and your company to connect with up to 1,500 unique visitors and increase your company’s brand awareness by partnering with ArtsKC to sponsor a First Friday Showcase.

The ArtsKC First Friday Showcase will be an access point for all things First Friday and feature live performances by ArtsKC Fund supported artists and interactive arts activities.
