To celebrate the Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park’s 25th anniversary, the Nelson-Atkins is partnering with Kansas City Parks and Rec to host the biggest picnic the region has ever seen. The event, which takes place from 5 p.m. to 8 .p.m. on Sunday, July 20th, will link the sculpture park and Theis Park to create a giant space for Kansas Citians to enjoy an evening of fun, including acoustic music, giant puppets and the chance to be part of a commemorative aerial photo. Pack your own meal, pre-order a picnic tote for four ($29) or grab your dinner from an on-site food truck. For more information or to pre-order your picnic, visit The Nelson-Atkins Museum’s website.
