Art Comes to Life in Kansas City
Right beside the Hotel Phillips who has won the ArtsKC Impact Award, 12 Baltimore is doing something different and intriguing. At least I must admit I didn’t know about it and it’s been going on for awhile.
They have announced their fifth artist-in-residence, sculptor Megan Lou Gallant. Her art is on display throughout the hotel and restaurant and seems to me to be a combination of the natural world, whimsy, and imagination. Her work has been exhibited at lots of different places, including the H&R Block Artspace.
I love the idea of art with food and drink and her studio/storefront will often have its door open, and you are welcome to join her, look at a current work in progress, and interact with her. And don’t forget to eat before or after at the restaurant, which has a new chef and menu which incorporates new and favorite items – and one of the best brunches in town! And they have a loooong happy hour, too and a new cocktail list. Their half price appetizers during that time are delish and there are specials every day.
If you like art, if you like food and drink, you should definitely check out all three at 12 Baltimore, next to the Hotel Phillips in the heART of downtown.
