“House and Home” Exhibit Opening
Event Sponsors: Mid America Arts Alliance
The Mid America Arts Alliance is opening “House & Home,”
an exhibit exploring the history of the American home and the issues that have influenced where and how Americans live. Ten years in the making, “House & Home” began as a 4,000-square-foot exhibit at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. The shows, which will change every two months or so, offer the Kansas City audience a sneak peek at M-AAA’s traveling exhibits before they head out on tour. M-AAA creates some of the shows, but most are organized by other institutions. M-AAA then converts them into compact, portable and easy-to-set-up exhibits for venues ranging from university art museums to rural community centers.
