Familiar Things with a Different Look

Pop can tabs, bowling balls, bottles, chipped glass, kitchen dishes and cups. You'll see all sorts of familiar things at the Grassroots Arts Center in Lucas but it sure won't look like how you'd see it in Mom's kitchen!
These are just four snapshots of what you'll see. Make sure that you don't just see the Garden of Eden when you go to Lucas but also the Grassroots Arts Center on Main Street.
A grassroots artist is one that isn't formally trained in art and all around Kansas you'll see manifestations of that kind of art. You'll see it on mail boxes, in a front yard, on a street pole (Marquette) or on someone's front porch.
Keep your eyes open to see the clever touches all around the state and that will help you "Get Kansas!"
