L M ALCOTT ART CENTER FOUNDATION
January 27, 2011

I became acquainted with the Alcott Art's Center by attending an evening or art exhibits and perfrmance art during a weekend show billed as "The Flying Asbinis Traveling Sideshow Arts-Travaganza!" It was definitely an extravaganza. It is located in an old public school building and I started by touring numerous classrooms that had been turned into galleries full of creations by very talented local artists.

After viewing the visual art I moved on to the auditorium where one after another an eclectic collection of performance artists entertained me and a room full of others with stirring acts including performance poets, dancers, musicians, a jugler and even a standup comic. It was a variety show of a sort not commonly seen these days.

Best of all the performers were not hidden away before and after their appearances. They were available for contact with the public that had come to see them. When acts were not performing they were part of the audience. I made a number of new acquaintaces who not only entertained and inspired me for one night, but some have become friends who continue to encourage and inspire me in my own artistic endeavors.

The Alcott Arts Center provices opportunities for creative people in the Kansas City, KS community to showcase their talents, and it offers classes for students of all ages thereby fostering creativity and artistic growth.

I would highly recommend the Alcott Arts Center to anyone who is either interested in furthering their own creative endeavors or who just wants to observe and be entertained by others.
