Attending Art School in Kansas City

“The City of Fountains”, so named because no other city in the world aside from Rome has more fountains, is the land of Truman, Hemingway, and, of course, the Chiefs. Given that the state of Missouri is surrounded by eight other states, it often boasts the quality of neighborliness and the residents of Kansas City embody this characteristic more than any other. In addition to its congenial denizens, the city, often called KCMO so as not to be confused with another city of the same namesake, is surprisingly affordable, rich in Jazz history, and, if you feel lucky, home to more than a few riverboat casinos. For an art student considering school in this pristine Midwest city, there is a wonderful art community in the city’s downtown Crossroads district, which is home to countless galleries as well as monthly First Fridays that showcase them. Kansas City also hosts one of the nation’s oldest and most recognized art festivals, the Plaza Art Fair, that takes place every autumn and draws crowds of over 300,000 people. This 75 year old event, along with the also popular Brookside Art Fair, highlight the work and local color of local and state artists, as well as rising art students. The city’s most recognized museum, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, exhibits over 5,000 masterpieces by American and European artists, and is also home to the Kansas City Sculpture Park. The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art is also worth a visit, along with a long list of impressive galleries, including The Blue Gallery, Cube at Beco, the Sherry Leedy Contemporary Art Gallery, and the Leedy Voulkos Art Center. For any art student, there is much to see and be shown in this fine “Show Me State” city.
