KANSAS EVENTS

Kansas Clean Distilled Whiskey supports innovators in all endeavors.  When we like an artist we want to share them with you. Below are our upcoming and past events featuring groundbreaking arts, music, fashion, performance and dance and of course, Kansas Whiskey. If you have an event for which you need a spirits brand and you believe it is the right fit for us please contact us here.

Drawing inspiration from themes of deep vulnerability, inner-strength, empowerment and cultural awareness, Javon Conaway brings his classic collection alongside a new body of work to tell a story within a space designed to set the viewer on a visual and mobile journey. Featuring subjects both fictional and inspired, the individuals depicted are used to tell stories incorporating the core themes of the show tapping into a style that's reminiscent of a speakeasy approach. Bold and colorful, the pieces evoke powerful emotions, leaving viewers with a sense of hope, pride and diversity.

UNDERGROUND sets off to expand upon other endeavors of Conaway’s enterprise “ARTBYJCON,” featuring a pop-up shop showcasing eclectic apparel and merchandising from the retail side of the brand, as well as collaborations focused on music, foods, beverages and community. Conaway also looks to grow the “events” platform by combining an art exhibition with a trendy and sophisticated night party vibe.

FRESKO Imageworks, Inc., Oh, Penny! Pictures, LLC and Kansas Whiskey presents an evening of cocktails and screening of PILLARS OF MADNESS, an eight-part documentary film series about the evolution of psychiatry in America.  In 1843, the American  nation made its first attempt, of many, to answer the question of how to properly care for the mentally ill.  Our story begins in Central New York in the Mohawk Valley, the site of the New York State Lunatic Asylum at Utica.  

“Old Main” was widely known as an achievement of public health infrastructure, a centerpiece of the New York economy, an institution at the forefront of cutting edge treatments  for the mentally ill and the birthplace of the western world’s foremost authoritative publication on psychiatric disorders,

While the asylum’s public image in its earlier years was testament of a great and compassionate society, the place holds a darker history, one where experimental treatments and limited understanding of the human brain left many in its care to descend into the depths of human suffering.
