KANSAS CITY WESTSIDE FINALE TONIGHT: MATTIE RHODES CENTER 19TH ANNUAL DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS CLOSING RECEPTION!!!



Tonight marked the conclusion of one of Kansas City's greatest traditions of late Autumn . . .

At the Westside Mattie Rhodes Center Arts Center artists, families, school groups and community members displayed traditional, contemporary and personal altars and Day of the Dead inspired art work.



For late night TKC readers, here's a quick glimpse of the celebration and some of our favorite images of this diverse gathering that enjoyed an impressive bump in attendance and support in 2017.
