The Library again provides a perfect family friendly starting point for your First Friday.

Indisposable: Kansas City Cultures debuts in first-floor Kirk Hall, featuring the photographs of Kansas City immigrants who were handed disposable cameras and asked to document their lives or simply photograph whatever they found interesting or appealing. That’s atop two exhibits in the Central Library’s formal galleries: Ryan Wilks’ multisensory Here Where You Wish and the absorbing drawings of Lawrence, Kansas, artist Michael Krueger in There From Here, Selected Drawings 2008-2018.

As part of the city’s Art in the Loop initiative, artist David Alpert leads an exercise in writing notes to place in Library books and multi-instrumentalist Amado Espinoza and his brother Pedro Calderon provide live music. Also, the Kansas City Symphony’s Bush and Jamie Helzberg Instrument Petting Zoo sets up on the Central Library’s fifth floor.
