From 2011-2020, plug [projects] occupied a storefront gallery space in Kansas City's historic West Bottoms district. There, plug exhibited works from national and local artists, facilitated programming such as Crit Nights, Spark Plugs, and unPLUGGED.
Due to the Covid-19 crisis and its impact on both art spaces and individual plug board members, plug left behind its West Bottom's gallery space and currently operates unattached from a physical location. While this model befits the times, plug has identified a potential future space and is working to secure the funding necessary to inhabit the space for the 2021 programming year.
We are currently seeking charitable donations to support plug as we plan a new space and future programming. Visit our support page to make a donation!
plug remains committed to bringing new art and artists to the attention of Kansas City audiences, and sparking important conversations about contemporary art and its role as an agent for change in the world. With the number of artist-run spaces shrinking, it is more important than ever to provide necessary outlets for the cultivation of creative work, independent of commercial consideration and free to the viewing public.
