Billed as a "a Carnivàle dialogue between artists and the public," Sorry for the Miscommunication is a thorough, Crossroads-spanning street primer on Kansas City's First Friday art-walk extravaganzas, combining wall-space exhibits by some of the area's best-and-brightest visual artists with live performances, fashion shows and music. For starters, Voler: Thieves of Flight, aerial fabric performers, grace the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center (2012 Baltimore, 816-474-1919) in conjunction with a group exhibit in honor of Brendan "Solve" Scanlon, a street artist murdered in Chicago's Logan Square in 2008. Artists include Hector Casanova, Lisa Marie Evans, Amanda Nervig and Lori Raye Erickson (from KC) and Tiptoe, Dave Folley and Joey D (from Chicago), among others. Meanwhile, at Third Eye Productions studio (2024 Main, 816-931-7160), Nathan Xander and Hip-Hop Academy provide music for Carnivàle from 6 to 9 p.m. And throughout the Crossroads, weather permitting, collaborators exhibit temporary sculptures, murals and chalk drawings while unicyclists, fire jugglers, human statues and musical performers entertain the crowds.
