Collectors Forum

Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art is excited to host three Private Collection Salons each year, free exclusively for Kemper Museum Connoisseur ($500) and National Committee ($1,000+) Members. Join us for a memorable evening where great company, conversation, and Café Sebastienne food and wine come together as contemporary art takes center stage! 

Salon reservations are on a first come, first served basis and space is limited. Each Private Collection Salon's address, directions, and parking instructions will be provided upon your reservation.
