Belger Arts Center

This art gallery-cum-community center is located in the eclectic Crossroads District of KC and is one of the premier galleries of abstract work in the city. Some of the rotating exhibits include sculptures, found art, performance art and other media too varied to compile here. The Belger Cartage Service building itself is a living monument, it is over 100 years old and in fact, this company still does business out of the offices on the 3rd floor.

Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art

Since its opening in the Fall of 1994, over the last two decades the Kemper Museum has become one of the most respected galleries in the region. The permanent collection donated by Bebe and Crosby Kemper features contemporary artwork and some of the artists include the famous glassblower Dale Chihuly, Georgia O'Keefe, Andrew Wyeth and Robert Mapplethorpe, just to name a few. Some temporary exhibits have featured a complete retrospective by fashion photographer, Herb Ritts and a moving AIDS tribute by Robert Juarez. The building merits attention also, it has plenty of nooks and crannies that are interspersed alongside two elongated wings, which makes the structure appear like a bird in flight.
