An Art Event Extravaganza!
The Game Show is a group art show featuring game show themed artwork created by a hand picked lineup of 30 artists. The artwork will only make up half of the event, as a real life game show featuring games built by artists, and played by the public, will be played throughout the opening of the event. The show will also feature 70s styled original theme music and more by local musicians, all hosted by members of Kansas City’s theater community.
Mark the dates on your calendar and come on out and support a great mix of local and national artists! Audience members will be able to participate in the games and win art prizes! Delight in the spoils of game shows, become part of this unique event!

The Game Show is the latest art event conceived, curated and produced by Michael Schliefke. Past events Michael has produced were the first two years of the Blue Genie Danger Derby, a no-rules pinewood derby race. Artists and the public were invited to create art cars that race down a 100 foot long track fraught with fire pits, jumps, swinging anvils and hazardous saw blades. In addition to the Danger Derby becoming the signature event of the East Austin Studio Tour, other award winning art shows and events were ‘Will There Ever Be a Rainbow‘ unicorn art show, ‘The Father’s Day Show‘, ‘Biblical Proportions‘, and ‘Radical Nautical‘.
