Event Summary
Prairie Village Art Show is not located on a prairie but in the heart of Kansas City metro area and surrounded by upper income demographics. It is celebrating its 63rd year and is the second oldest show in the city. The show is well attended and draws patrons from the entire metropolitan area. The show is small with only 100 artists but they come from all parts of the country. This shopping area was developed by the same company that built the Country Club Plaza, location of the Plaza Art Show.
