For the sharing the value of art in our community
The Atchison Art Association believes that a diverse and flourishing cultural community contributes to the city’s overall civic and economic vitality and the well-being of its people and neighborhoods. We present to you our five year plan that contributes to this process of building a progressive and vibrant community. A Vision of our Culture includes six permanent public art exhibits that visually draw attention to the places in our community where culture is introduced, developed and nurtured. Art, history, food, commerce, people and language are the building blocks of local culture and individually each is the focus of this multi-year public art project.
To Share Food is to Share Life is the first of six permanent public art exhibits designed to bring economic vitality and awareness to the places in our community where culture is introduced, developed and nurtured. The premise underlying this project is that local food is one of the most elemental components of culture and local identity. A series of 18 permanent mosaic panels will be installed at the Atchison Farmer's Market on Main Street. Local artist will create the design using color as the dominant unification principle, tiles will be applied by the community. Once installed, the mosaics will beautify the market making it an attractive destination for commerce, tourism and local food education. Secondarily, the mosaic will generate conversation, encourage interaction and inspire creativity, contributing to the advancement of our culture. Because we believe in sharing the value of art we invite you to build along with us, this is a collaborative project. Come down to the Farmers Market and help to install tiles this summer or donate to the Vision, because to build a great city it will take all of us.
The Atchison Art Association invites you to join us as we celebrate the arts. This European-style open market is a fresh approach to the exchange of homegrown art, food, & culture. On Saturday April 26th from 10-5 the Atchison Art Association will host its second annual Open Air Fair on the Atchison Riverfront. This event will feature booths by Artists/Artisans, Farmer/Growers and Vintage items (aka funky junk) along with performance art, music, classes and demos from our artists.
