Her Art Project at the Plaza Art Fair, was a great success! We had beautiful weather, and a lot of people came out to play in the sun! Kids and adults alike kept busy making superhero/super-heroine masks, crafting Mami Wata dolls with local fiber artist Nedra Bonds, and posing against our skyline backdrop. Wonder Woman came by on Sunday and made our celebration complete!

We would like to give a huge “thank you” to our co-sponsors: the UMKC Conservatory of Music & Dance – Community Music & Dance Academy, UMKC Department of Theater, and the Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City.
