Why support the work of Kemper Museum?

Your support provides access to the art and artists of our time to spark inspiration and deepen understanding of the world around us. As one of Kansas City's few entirely-free cultural instutions, there is never a charge to experience the museum or attend its programs.

We could not do it without you!
