2016 MAIN sits at the threshold of Downton Kansas City's historic Crossroads district. Recently renovated, it offers modern amenities in a beautiful gallery setting full of character and original architectural details. Different from many event spaces in the area, 2016 MAIN not only embraces, but actively fosters the creative energy that defines the Crossroads district, doubling as an art gallery. Furthermore, co-owner and seasoned Kansas City photographer Jodi Vander Woude runs her studio out of the space.
2016 MAIN plays host to any number and type of events from fundraisers and corporate meetings, dinners and holiday parties to more intimate rehearsal dinners, showers, weddings and receptions. Our open layout and warm features ensure each event is completely unique and inviting for all those celebrating.
Before settling in KC, Jodi Vander Woude worked for 16 years at Playboy Magazine, as an editor, producer, stylist and photographer. This experience kickstarted Jodi's career, which includes collaborations with several publications and fellow photographers. Her passion for creativity and travel has led her around the world, capturing different people, places and stories as she goes.
2016 Main champions the artistic wave taking rise throughout the KC Crossroads area and beyond. We are thrilled to be actively involved through our partnership with curator, Angie Jennings who directs all gallery operations. Stop by during First Fridays to check out our current exhibition.
