David Grimes, Greg Bland, David Bland and I had a great night hosting the “Hello Art” crowds on Nov. 1, the First Friday Art Crawl in the Crossroads Arts District. Missouri Bank provided refreshments as art lovers first gathered to explore the American Indian art in our office and then ventured out to several nearby galleries.
Hello Art is a nonprofit organization that brings artists, gallery owners, knowledgeable arts patrons and curious beginners together to tour different galleries throughout the year.
More than 300 people came through the building appreciating the original paintings by Kevin Red Star, Allen Knows His Gun, Ryan Red Corn and Bobby Wilson, our pottery and carvings, as well as the many photographs of our clients’ housing and economic development projects.
People were drawn in by our art and our rooftop solar array. We met a lot of neighbors who watched the construction of our solar panels and then our rooftop deck and children’s play area. We thank Hello Art and Missouri Bank for bringing the art party to our office building!
