It is with great pleasure that the Alliance Française de Kansas City invites you to an unforgettable evening, a meeting of art, culture and sharing, which will take place at the 2016 Main Art Gallery at Crossroads on First Friday, June 7th, starting at 5:30pm. Let yourself be transported by the magic of "Des Fissures et des Mots" ("Cracks and Words").

This exhibition, part of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, highlights unique works of art that celebrate Paralympic athletes, true heroes and heroines of the 21st century. It's a celebration of their courage, determination and passion, captured through the magical fusion of image and word.

We are also honored to welcome artist Layla Metssitane for the world premiere, whose talent helps make this evening even more memorable.

The photographs on display feature the bodies of Paralympic athletes, beautifully painted in gold, symbolizing their strength, resilience and determination. This artistic touch adds extra depth and beauty to these captivating images.

In addition to this captivating visual experience, you'll have the opportunity to savor art with all your senses at an exclusive cocktail reception prepared by Westport Café's talented chef Romain Monnoyeur (semi-finalist of the James Beard Award).
