Arts Council

The Lenexa Arts Council was created to promote and encourage public programs to further public awareness in the fine and performing arts. In addition, the council serves as a clearing house for scheduling exhibits, recitals, lectures or other artistic activities with the City as well as recommendations and advice for further artistic activities within the City.


The council is composed of nine members appointed by the Mayor with consent of the City Council. Vacancies are filled by appointment by the Mayor with consent of the City Council. For more information, contact Gary Ristow at 913.477.7110 or download an application.
