H&R Block Artspace
Dedicated to artists, art, and ideas since 1999, the Artspace serves the mission of the Kansas City Art Institute as a dynamic teaching museum, engaging students and introducing audiences to important contemporary art and artists.
To enhance and sustain a strong and vibrant regional arts ecology, the Artspace organizes and presents innovative and diverse exhibitions and public programs featuring established and emerging regional, national, and international artists. Our vision is to contribute value and diversity to the artistic advancement of the city; to create meaningful collaborations that benefit regional artists and audiences; and to foster conversations and engagements that explore innovation, experimentation, knowledge, and create greater cultural understanding. The Artspace supports the creation, presentation, and appreciation of important contemporary art through exhibitions, publications, public art projects, educational programs, professional development opportunities, collection stewardship, and partnerships.
