Paint drips and splatters are celebrated, lines are rarely drawn straight and drawings are slightly askew. The message behind these gestures is to discuss his happiness on this planet while also showing life’s hardships and difficulties. Clonts is a member of the Famous Dead Artists art co-op in Wichita. He also boasts an extensive resume of group and solo exhibitions around Wichita. On view in the CityArts Main Gallery Feb. 24-March 25, 2017.

KEVIN BOZEMAN
Location: The Loony Bin Comedy Club (@ Live at 215) - 215 N. St. Francis
Contact Name: Ron Shively    Email: wichitaloonybin@yahoo.com    Phone: 316-618-4242

Kevin Bozeman was born pretty much kick ass. That should be enough for you, but I'm sure it's not. Kevin came from a two parent home with a loving and supporting family. Kevin has never had a crappy debilitating relationship or endured any emotional duress. So when he hits the stage it's not because it's therapeutic or working through issues. It's because he enjoys telling jokes and ridiculing society. Smooth and clever are the words that can best describe the comic stylings of Kevin Bozeman. Kevin has appeared on Comedy Central and CBS Star Search. Kevin was also asked to perform at the prestigious Chicago and Boston Comedy Festivals. Kevin headlines all the major clubs and colleges in the country. Don't be surprised if you see Kevin starring in the next big sitcom. Show rated Soft R
