Backstage Pass: Collecting Art in Kansas City

September 7–November 4, 2007

back to list  see current exhibitions   see upcoming exhibitions

By pairing artworks from area private collections with examples by the same artists represented in the Kemper Museum’s permanent collection, this exhibition offers visitors a rare opportunity to see outstanding paintings, photographs, and sculptures by internationally acclaimed artists, including Willem de Kooning, Duane Hanson, Deborah Butterfield, Helen Frankenthaler, and Lezley Saar, among others, normally housed in private homes and offices. The diversity and quality of the featured works are not only a testament to Kansas City’s rich history of supporting the visual arts through public and private patronage, but also proof to the thriving support and enthusiasm for the arts in the city today.

Special thanks to M&I Wealth Management for sponsoring the members' exhibition preview. Additional thanks to the Bradley W. and Linda J. Nicholson Foundation and an anonymous donor for supporting the exhibition.
