Celebrate fall with live music and artful pumpkins carved by Kansas City Art Institute students at Carved, a festive family event at the Crestwood Shops from 5 – 8 p.m. on Thursday, October 25. A portion of all the proceeds from shop and restaurant sales will benefit KCAI student scholarships.
For years, KCAI freshman Foundation students have put their carving prowess to work by taking lowly pumpkins and gourds and turning them into intricate art. From frightening to fabulous to funny…these are not your typical jack-o-lanterns! Students will be on site carving and their astonishing pumpkin creations will be available for a $50 donation.
Visitors to Carved can get retail therapy at eleven locally-owned shops and enjoy delectable fare at Café Europa and Aixios. The Crestwood Shops, located on 55th Street between Brookside Boulevard and Oak Street, were established in 1922 and is Kansas City’s first neighborhood shopping area.
