Kemper Museum Offers Art Al Fresco

This summer, two of Kansas City’s best-loved museums will host al fresco art installations.

What’s more—both encourage the public to not just touch the exhibits, but to interact with them. At the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art’s “Float” installation, visitors can take time out to lounge on one of the hammocks created for the museum by local artist Jarrett Mellenbruch.

Meanwhile, over at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, visitors could literally find themselves lost in a new permanent addition to the museum’s Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park. Artist and Kansas City native Robert Morris combines the ages-old concept of a maze with modern design and materials in his stunning “Glass Labyrinth,” which was commissioned in celebration of the sculpture park’s 25th anniversary.
