Kansas City Art Institute - 5pm
Kansas City Repertory Theater - 7pm


The new year begins with a visit to the Kansas City Art Institute. Described by President Tony Jones, CBE as a factory between two show rooms (the Nelson and the Kemper), the school is the top rated art school in the midwest and we’ll begin the evening with a reception in Vanderslice Hall, one of the original building on campus and beautifully restored as a meeting place and executive offices. After meeting the President and partaking in a wonderful reception catered by the Two Sisters, we’ll tour the newest addition to the campus, the David T. Beals 111 Studios for Art and Technology. We’ll then cross Warwick to the Richard J. Stern Ceramics Building for a tour of the studios and the Ferguson Gallery and meet the head of the Department, Cary Esser.

We’ll depart the school in time for the 7 o’clock curtain at the Kansas City Repertory Theater for the exciting, award winning musical, Side by Side by Sondheim. This Pulitzer, Tony and Academy Award winning play has been enjoyed by audiences all over the world, but it’s a first for the Spencer Theatre on the campus of UMKC.
