OPEN SPACES OR EMPTY SPACES?? KANSAS CITY SWOPE PARK ARTSY FEST SUFFERS EPIC ATTENDANCE FAIL!!!
Just a quick tidbit after we've seen some pix of the weekend festivities and a highly touted, taxpayer subsidized music festival . . .
A GLIMPSE AT KANSAS CITY "OPEN SPACES" REVEALS SPARSE CROWDS AND THE LIKELIHOOD THAT MAYOR SLY WASTED $500K ON THIS URBAN CORE ARTS FEST!!!
Here's a shot shared by a social media friend that offers an unfiltered look at the festival . . .
Remember . . . It was widely documented that City Hall’s commitment was about $500,000, but Mayor James said he was confident that the city will kick in more.
To be fair, the artist wasn't angry about the lack of attendance and seemed to be supportive of the event. By and large the local arts community has been grateful to City Hall for the promotion and infusion of cash.
On the other hand . . .
KANSAS CITY TAXPAYERS HAVE SUFFERED NOTHING BUT HYPE AND FAKE NEWS ON "OPEN SPACES" ATTENDANCE DISAPPOINTMENT!!! PHOTOS FROM THE SCENE EXPOSE THE COSTLY LOW TURNOUT CITY HALL CONSPIRACY!!!
Whilst supporting the arts is important, it's hard to justify this expense given the obvious dearth of community support despite overwhelming local hype.
You decide . . .
