What matters to you inspires us at Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. Is your passion modern and contemporary art? Meeting and listening to the artists of our time? Engaging in educational (and entertaining) programs for children, families and adults? Learning about “What’s Next?” from our dedicated volunteer docents? Fine dining? Shopping for artisan-crafted gifts? The Kemper Museum offers it all.
At the Kemper Museum, we strive to forge a place in the lives of both the occasional visitors as well as serving the interests of loyal members and our neighbors, with whom we share a commitment to civic engagement and the advancement of Kansas City as a cultural destination.
Art can and does change lives. Every visitor, at whatever age, comes to the Museum with an active imagination and the desire to experience, learn, and engage. We are all open to the power of art to inspire. As the Museum closes a chapter by reaching our 20th Anniversary year in 2014, I am looking forward in a shared belief with our Trustees, staff, and visitors that the next twenty years will be filled with great meaning and promise.
