Review for L M Alcott Art Center Foundation, Kansas City, KS, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was invited to an event there about 8 or 9 years ago. Fell in love with the place and the people. Asked Chris if she would allow the PTA to use the space for a meeting. We have been friends ever since. I have attended many amazing performances there, seen some incredible art work, heard some moving spoken word performances. Have taken part in the Halloween event on a regular basis. It's such a positive atmosphere, Everything positive nothing negative. I think it's a hidden gem in Kansas City and would love to have more people involved at any time! I have spent so much time there volunteering they asked me to sit on the board. Proud to be apart of this organization.

A few years ago, I met Chris and Chuck Green. They told me of a place they have and there ideas of what they wanted to do to help the community. I have attended plays, art shows, speciality events and even "Trick or Trunk" nights. I have asked them to let us use the building for another not for profit and they always tell me yes. My youngest daughter has been to many of these events with me and has gotten to experience different types of plays, she was part of an art show, and loves to dress up and volunteer for trick or trunk. They have faced many challanges and always rise above and come out on top. I love there motto, my favorite part is "everything positive". I try and help when I can, I have printed off flyers for events and put them up in various places, I have donated candy and time for the Trick or Trunk nights. I also try and help to promote events when I can. I really enjoy the events that I have attended and will continue to get to them when I can. I love that they are trying to promote a love of the arts and support local artist's at the same time.

I am the PTA Council President for our school district. We started working together three years ago. It has been a great partnership. They have let us use the building a couple of times for our meetings, we had an art show together, they did the displays and we provided the food. We try and help provide information about the plays and programs they provide for our community on our website and thru our schools. My daughter's and I have gone to radios shows, and some of the plays they have done. one of my daughter's took part in some of the art shows. My daughters attended one of the trick or trunk events and this year my 11year old and I worked the trick or trunk event. The Alcott Arts Center is a jewell that has only been discovered by a few, but should be shared by all. If you have the chance to visit this place, please do.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing the faces of the people who were looking at the works of art. Also watching the kids as they got candy, juice drinks and other treats. also checking out the displays and costumes of the people helping.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them more help, more patrons, more volunteers and a heating system so they can stay open year round.
