Patrons of this year’s Prairie Village Art Show will have an opportunity to do more than just peruse works of art this year. They’ll have a chance to weigh in on what the newest public art installation at the shopping center should be.
First Washington Realty, the company that owns the shopping center, will have a display set up at this year’s fair with renderings of three concepts for a new installation that would be placed in the seating area along the path between Hen House and Tavern along Mission Lane. The space currently features a globe sculpture, which the company says it will be relocating to a to-be-determined spot at that center.
First Washington representatives will be on hand just east of Jos. A Bank from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday to exhibit the new public art concepts.
Concept sketches of the three proposals being considered are below:
This year’s art show kicks off this evening at 5 p.m., with artists on hand to show their works through 8 p.m. The Michael Beer Band will play under the clocktower from 7 to 10 p.m.
On Saturday, festivities begin with a pancake breakfast from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Artists will be showing their work from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and the bank Private Stock will play from 7 to 10 p.m.
On Sunday, artists will be on hand from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
