What is Art for Arthritis?
Art for Arthritis pairs 10 local children affected by juvenile arthritis with area artists to spend a summer together creating unique pieces of art. The art is auctioned off at the Art for Arthritis art auction to raise money for nationwide arthritis research and advocacy, as well as local programs and services.

Most people don’t think about children having arthritis but more than 3,000 children in the Kansas City metro area have some form of this painful disease. Art for Arthritis is a one-of-a-kind experience uniting local artists and children impacted by juvenile arthritis. Together, they turn a potentially challenging and painful situation into beautiful and inspiring pieces of art. Attendees can look forward to an evening of drinks, heavy appetizers, a silent auction and an exciting live auction featuring the artwork the children and artists have created together. The 2017 event will be the 14th anniversary of Art for Arthritis.
