Have you heard of Chain to River: 2.0 Art Walk and Performance?
It takes place this Sunday, June 4 and is a free family-friend creative art and performance event put on by Harvester Arts. They are a cool organization whose programming builds the creative capacity of the community through arts experimentation, public art projects, artist residencies, and professional development for artists.
Chain To River: 2.0 Art Walk and Performance returns to downtown Wichita and is something definitely unique to do.
The event connects two popular art destinations in Wichita in the Chainlink Gallery Place and Exploration Gallery Place. This family-friendly art walk and performance will take place in downtown Wichita and along the riverfront. Chain To River features a walking interactive art performance with live dance, music and visual art. Attendees will enjoy space to express their creativity, play, and enjoy the works of many local artists.
In case you missed it earlier in the story, the event is free to attend, and all ages are welcome.
Everything starts at 1:45 p.m. on Sunday, June 4 at Chainlink Gallery Place at 121 E. Douglas. Participants should be prepared to walk approximately 1.5 miles. A golf cart will be available for anyone with mobility challenges. The event will culminate with a creative “happening” at Exploration Gallery Place at Exploration Place at 300 N. McLean Blvd.
Chain to River: 2.0 is the brainchild of Aaron Asis, who has been working with Harvester Arts for the past year and was selected because of his background of working with government agencies, non-profit organizations, and community groups to document underappreciated phenomena and to exhibit work in unexpected places. Aaron Asis’s work is focused on sharing art experiences outside of art spaces to inspire personal thoughts, and create public opportunities where people can learn, explore, and share throughout our cities.
