Why support the work of Kemper Museum?

Kemper Museum demonstrates how the art and artists of our time spark inspiration and deepen understanding of the world around us.

Your support ensures access to world-class exhibitions of contemporary art, educationprograms for all ages, school tours and transportation cost reimbursement, opportunities to engage with artists, and quality digital content available everywhere. As always, there is no admission charge to experience Kemper Museum, one of Kansas City’s only entirely free cultural institutions.
We could not do it without you!

Even today, as Kemper Museum is carefully making plans to reopen, an unprecedented and growing number of people are finding tangible resources provided as virtual experiences by the Museum, inspiring creativity, and impacting visitors of all ages, accessible from everywhere.

Over the past several months, staff have been building content for the Museum’s website and smartphone app, and have launched a series of engaging new social media campaigns to celebrate the artists and works in the Permanent Collection. New programs send free art materials to those who register, in conjunction with a virtual event to explore the thematic issues presented. One series called Virtual Playdates has been viewed more than 43,000 times!
