A new website will be your go-to resource for learning more about art in Johnson County.


Its launch (date yet to be determined) will come from a fruitful partnership between the Arts Council of Johnson County, a professor from the University of Kansas and students and faculty of Johnson County Community College. Come celebrate, learn how the site will work and meet the people who are making the site a reality.

Want to learn more about art in Johnson County? Soon, there’ll be a website for that! Here’s the collaborative workflow for this useful product.

  • Students led by Mike Sinclair, faculty within the School of Architecture and Design at the University of Kansas, will be shooting a comprehensive series of photographs for each artwork. Students led by Allison Smith, Professor of Art History at JCCC, are researching the art pieces and writing descriptions to accompany the photos.
  • Students led by Suzanne Smith, Assistant Professor of Information Systems at JCCC, will build a database to house the art images and narratives.
  • Students led by James Hopper, Professor of Web Development and Digital Media, plan to incorporate story-telling techniques to enhance the content and make the information available to any desktop computer or mobile device.

This event is must-attend for art lovers, historians, storytellers and technophiles. Free and open to the public.
