Kemper Museum’s 2020 Artist Dinner Series Launches with Fanfare
"Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art is one of only a handful of museums in the Midwest which features a gourmet restaurant tucked away inside its walls. So when Café Sebastienne’s culinary team unveiled an Artist Dinner Series last year, it soon became one of the hottest tickets in town. Tickets went so quickly it even caught the museum a bit off guard. Seems the only thing cultural aficionados like more than appreciating art is enjoying a perfectly executed, intimate, epicurean meal designed around it."

Artist Angel Otero Shares His ‘Diario’ at Kemper Museum
"Angel Otero routinely punctuates his sentences with 'it’s dope' and a chuckle.
The 38-year-old artist from Santurce, Puerto Rico, is larger than life, but his mixed-media installation 'Diario' at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art is even larger. It’s his largest work to date. The commissioned work is the fourth in the museum’s Atrium Project series curated by Erin Dziedzic, director of curatorial affairs at the Kemper Museum." ––Vicky Diaz-Camacho, KCPT
Around Town: Rick Mullins
In her new series, Food Editor Grace Pritchett shares a drink or two and a bite to eat with some of KC’s most prominent food personalities. This week, she shares a bite + takes in the wise words of Cafe Sebastienne’s Rick Mullins.
The Flavor of Art
“Eighty-year-old artist Virginia Jaramillo ran her fingers over bumps of paint on the canvas and tilted her head to gaze at her 1975 painting titled Principle of Equivalence. The title, she said, references more philosophical notions of equivalence. The burnt-orange color draws from childhood memories of riding her bike through the desert landscape at her grandparents’ turkey ranch in El Centro, Southern California.
‘See the gradation? I would see the earth, all cracked, and it was that color,’ she said. ‘To me it’s soothing.’
