It’s been a difficult year for the arts in Kansas City. Many artist-run spaces have folded under the pressure of the pandemic, with programming canceled, revenues lost, and patrons navigating their own crises. We ourselves made the decision to move out of our West Bottoms space in order to ensure plug's survival through the Covid-19 crisis.
What has NOT changed is plug’s commitment to bringing unseen art and artists to the attention of Kansas City audiences. We believe contemporary art is an agent for change and instigator of dialogue. As a nonprofit gallery, free to the public, we support groundbreaking, creative work liberated from commercial interests. But we cannot do it alone.
plug is currently fundraising campaign, running through October 28, 2020. Our #1 priority is securing gallery space for 2021 programming. We have identified a potential new home for plug, and we need your help to make it happen! Your donations will help to make opening our new space possible.
Please consider supporting plug with a tax-deductible contribution. Your donation directly supports our free programming, including gallery exhibitions of local and national artists, critique events, screenings, and critical dialogue. With your help, plug will continue on as an inclusive, community-engaged site for interaction with contemporary art.
You can donate directly to plug online HERE or on our support page. (Donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law).
