Final Friday

CityArts is hosting the opening of four new exhibits from 6-8 p.m. on Final Friday, July 29, that celebrate the work of artists in the Wichita area. Admission is free to CityArts’ galleries that are open 9 a.m.-9 p.m., Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday. The shows will be on display through August 20. CityArts is located at 334 N. Mead in Old Town Square.

Artless is an interactive experience that reinvigorates the traditional gallery exhibition by inviting the public to actively take part in a creative community art project with local artists. Through collaboration and creative freedom, Artless provides a unique opportunity to work directly with the artists as champions of pure, effortless expression. Imperfection is perfection, error is lionized and mistakes are welcome.
