Cultural Kansas City

Visions of Nation from Legray to Monet

One of the reasons I am so proud to call Kansas City home is the impressive array of art and cultural events available in our region. On a cold wintry day or evening what could be better than enjoying some of these offerings to enrich ones life! 

Celebrating Picasso

In the Looking Glass

The above and more at The Nelson-Atkins Museum

Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art

The Kansas City Ballet presents Dracula

War Horse at the Music Hall

Coming in March, Puccini's Opera La Boheme
Kaufman Center for the Performing Arts

at The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

As you can see Kansas City is much more than Chief's Nation! This is just a glimpse of what Kansas City has to offer and so much more! One great site to see what is available in Arts, Cultures, and Activities is Visit KC. com

I wish all of my friends and followers all the best in the year ahead. 
Thank you for supporting the arts!

Good evening Karena! I just barely got this new post in my notifications and I think my blog roll is on the blink!

Like us in Minneapolis, you certainly have so much to see and do. I saw War Horse here in Minneapolis last June and was thrilled about it. Downtown is just minutes away from our house, and what a peaceful and clean drive it is! Living in L.A. this close to the city is NOT the same experience!

I hope you are well my dear, and enjoy a lovely weekend! Anita

Hi Karena, The last time I was in Kansas City was when I was a child...you just did a good job of making me want to return as an adult!! Happy Thursday!

MJH Design Arts said...

Hi karena, I had no idea that there was so much happening in the arts in KC. I'm impressed.

I love Kansas City. We lived there for 7 years and I wish we could move back!

Divine Theatre said...

Dracula! THAT would be quite an experience!
Thank you for sharing your "insider" tips. Although, in this weather, I just want to stay indoors by the fire, counting the days until Spring!
What a sour attitude I have!
I always look forward to your visits, like a warm ray of sunshine that peeks through Winter windows and settles on the floor where the cats sleep.

...and you have a HEARTist eye my friend, always uplifting anyone who desires to simply inspire. Thank you for visiting today!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Good morning Karena! It is always so nice to see your visit my posts! I hope you are well. Our very cold winter is being so harsh on things and I cannot wait for the flowers to show up! Hence, my overload on flower photos! But indeed, LOVE never freezes over and is always there. PEACE AND LOVE TO YOU!

Oh, Karene,
I hope your visit was a charmed one, with the arts of a different kind. It's wonderful to enjoy the beauty a city has to offer, and yours being so diverse with so much to offer.
I had a friend who lived in a stone wall cottage in Kansas loving her beauty all around her, I could only imagine myself in her shoes or yours for that matter.

As for Laura, she is a humble artist of no recognition, one that others may feel her value is worthless art in pottery, but I find it valued beyond its worth. I adore all it's imperfections and personality fitting in right at home here with me :) that's what's so interesting about the arts :)

I always feel so blessed to receive a visit from you my friend, my hope is that your visit came with good health, that you are enjoying life at its best.
Perhaps someday I will be able to visit your beautiful Kansas. Until then enjoy what I am not able to :)

Lots of love,
