When I was at the Kansas City Art Institute, I used to walk over to the Nelson Atkins almost daily. I would sit and draw statues, or write papers about works there, just walk around there between classes. But since I'm no longer within walking distance I don't go as often and sometimes I forget what an amazing art museum Kansas City has. Although, I shouldn't use that as an excuse, since I'm only a 3 minute drive, now. We went a few days ago for the Chinese landscape exhibit, which was stunning. And we didn't even realize that after they put it up on April 28th, they will be storing it for 10 years! So if you live in Kansas City or are just passing through before then, I definitely suggest going to see it.
