Mid-America Arts Alliance is a regional arts organization that supports the arts in a six-state region. We bring more art to more people through exhibitions, performances, and professional development for arts professionals. We are especially committed to supporting underserved communities that may lack the resources to provide cultural programs and services to their constituents. In Kansas City, M-AAA hosts 10 LIVE! in the Crossroads events a year during First Fridays (exceptions are January and July). This includes art exhibitions in our headquarters as well as concerts in our parking lot during the summer. In addition to First Fridays, our exhibition spaces are open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.
