Delight Your Senses with ArtsKC Apertif Parties

Four parties, one cause is at the heart of this series of evenings that marry exciting performances, art and libations. 

Patrons can choose one or all the parties, which include the Ward Parkway home of Benny and Edith Lee on May 3 featuring the art of Ricardo Nunez; the suburban villa of Dale and Vickie Trott on May 17 with the graffiti artist Eddie Moore; the Union Hill home of Rachael and Kanon Cozad on May 30 with classical guitarist Beau Bledsoe and fashion designer Whitney Manney (her work is shown here); and ending on June 7 when Tim Butt will transform his Black Bamboo showroom in the Crossroads into a speakeasy lounge featuring cabaret style entertainment from Victor & Penny, Molly Hammer, and The HeartAches from the Heartland Men’s Chorus.

Individual tickets range from $100 to $150. For details and tickets (which are certain to go fast), visit
