Each year Johnson County employees donate time, talent and dollars towards the ArtsKC Fund. This fund provides broad-based community support distributed through grants to arts organizations and individuals artists in the KC Metro.
This year Johnson County employees submitted 82 works of art for display during the campaign in two of our County buildings. Some of those pieces were sold in a silent auction and raised nearly $2,000. Combining that with t-shirt and calendar sales, plus employee contributions, this year’s campaign raised $17,506.70, solidly surpassing our $15,015 goal.
As part of the ArtsKC Campaign, Johnson County employees vote for their favorite work of art in the People’s Choice Award. The above photo was this year’s first-place winner, submitted by Jackie Eatinger of the Public Works Department.
