LM Alcott Art Center became a part of my life when I was a teenager. I would come for rehearsals for plays I was in, and then eventually began to come to hold auditions, to share my writing, and see what other artists and performers were doing. I find myself very fortunate to have developed a relationship with an organization that encouraged art for the youth as well as for the community. It is a great place to explore, learn, and savor art. I am thankful for the time I have worked with this foundation, and hope they can continue to be a beacon in the community.
Great place for shows and kids activities! My girls love it!
We have attended several presentations of Shakespeare in the Parking Lot and greatly enjoyed them all. Love the atmosphere and everything that Alcott stands for!
The Alcott Art Center does a fantastic job of keeping the arts alive and thriving in Kansas City, Kansas. They are connected to our community in many ways and are always working hard to make a positive difference, whether it be through live productions, gallery exhibitions or collaboration with other not for profit and service organizations. Their programming reaches across the lifespan from young to old. I'm thrilled to have them as an active part of our community.
I attended a fall dinner fundraiser a couple of years ago, and it was very entertaining and for a worthy cause. I own rental property up the street from Alcott, and I appreciate all that they do to help the area and serve the local community. Please keep up the good works! It is fine and reputable people like the Greens that make the area a good place to live.
I attended a function last year at Alcott, and it was awesome. They had karaoke fundraiser, and it was a load of fun and for a very worthy cause. Thank you for all that you do. We donated a fridge to them last year, and hope that they can continue to do good works.
I am Elaine Grisnik, a local Kansas City, Kansas artist. My first exhibit at the Alcott in 2009 was a great experience. Chris and Chuck are so enthusiastic and spend many, many hours keeping this venue alive. The Alcott Center is a very positive aspect of the neighborhood. Not only are they restoring life to the once empty, deteriorating, school building, but they bring in a variety of artists, performers, and neighborhood youth to participate in activities. My mother, artist Marijana Grisnik has given presentations of her historic paintings of Strawberry Hill neighborhood of KC, KS to the youth at the center. The youth took pride in their own neighborhoods and were inspired to do paintings .
In 2010, I underwent brain surgery for a tumor. I could not paint after that. I visited the center to view a Second Saturday exhibit and was encouraged by Chris and Chuck to have another exhibit of paintings. By July, 2011 I had my first exhibit of paintings after brain surgery at the Alcott!
The Alcott Center has been a very positive influence in my life and deserves recognition. They truly change people's lives.
