The mission of the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center art exhibitions program is to celebrate the diversity and rich culture of our home. It is our goal to create thought-provoking exhibitions that encourage a new perspective of Johnson County’s place within the global community.
Many of the works in the exhibit are available for purchase directly through the artist, and all proceeds are retained by the artist. All art exhibitions are free to view by the public. See calendar below for this year's exhibition schedule.
Stash is a dialogue between artists and the community, exchanging materials and ideas via artmaking. The project includes artists of all levels of experience from in and outside of the Kansas City metro area. Each artist received an envelope of similar materials from which they created an original artwork. This project was created in partnership with the Arts Council of Johnson County and visual artist Justin Border with program support courtesy Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission.
Public Art Program- Indoor Exhibit
In 2019, recognizing the growing role that art and culture plays in their mission, as well in as the way people experience parks, the Johnson County Parks and Recreation District (JCPRD) launched a Public Art Program to serve their many parks, trails, facilities, green spaces, and recreational spaces. Images of, and the stories behind, each of JCPRD's Public Art Installations is showcased indoors at the Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center as a way to connect our many facilities and art endeavors across the district.
