We begin the New Year with a visit to the Bruce R. Watkins Cultural Heritage Center to see the Kansas City Black Repertory Theater production of Looking Over the President's Shoulder, an amazing story of Alonzo Fields 21 year history as Chief Butler to presidents Hoover, Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower.
Beforehand on this Saturday evening, January 26th, we'll visit the home and art collection of Lance and Lynn Carlton. Their 1910 Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home is full of contemporary art, both local and national, including Christo, Oldenberg, Hung Liu, Michael Eastman, Lesley Saar and Howard Jones. In addition, the Art Deco and Art Nouveau objects, Tiffany sconces and period furniture highlight the arts and crafts period interior design.
Join us at 5:30pm at their home for a special reception catered by Michael Wyatt. After touring the Carlton home, we'll depart in time for the 7:30pm performance. Invite your friends and we'll see you for another special Arts Alive event.
