DISCO TURF is a collaborative art and media experience featuring some of Kansas City’s innovative young artists.

Anna Van Gheem showcases her SS17 Ready-to-Wear: THE MORE CROOKED OUR TEETH GET.

Sara Garrison celebrates the release of Likewise Magazine Issue One, which is themed around Joint Forces.

Camile Messerley will screen her short film Bloomin, starring Ren Seitz.

Van Gheem’s garments and Garrison’s magazine will be available for purchase.

SS17 Ready-to-Wear: THE MORE CROOKED OUR TEETH GET Anna Van Gheem Designer and BFA candidate Anna Van Gheem’s collection employs natural imagery (WHAT IS NATURAL? TREES, SLAMANDERS SCAMPING ABOUT?) and avante-garde surface (GLASS STICKING OUT OF THE FLOOR?) design to explore idealism, irony, and exaggeration. Inspired by adolescent romance, this fashion line is a reflection on the pitfalls of self-deluded love and inevitable aging. LIKEWISE MAGAZINE Produced by Sara Garrison Likewise Magazine is produced by Sara Garrison, a graphic design alumni from the Kansas City Art Institute (2016). An interdisciplinary, collaborative project, Likewise Magazine asserts all art forms hold equal value. Encouraging overlap between disciplines, Likewise provides an opportunity for artists to come together to exhibit their work, contributing towards an inclusive art community. BLOOMIN Camile Messerley and Anna Van Gheem Kansas City-based artist, writer, and organizer Camile Messerley collaborates with Anna Van Gheem to produce “Bloomin.” Dealing with escapism and fantasy, this short film depicts the evolution of Van Gheem’s visual practice, and follows a young girl running through the woods to her rebirth. This event also features music by FK Menace, and complimentary refreshments are provided. Come ready to disco down!
