1934 November - Kansas City Art Institute - Missouri

The Lighton Studios opened in October 1930. Artists met at 1718 Holly Street to talk about art. A few years later, in 1933, the Kansas City Art Institute began their Fireside Evenings. As a result, many folks gathered around tea to chat about art and listen to speakers. It was natural for the Institute to host an annual exhibition for Lighton's group.
