Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts


Finally, they day that Kansas City has been waiting for… the Grand Opening of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.  This is a 416 million dollar tour (that is the cost of this beautiful work of art).  We literally saw all sides of the building, up close and personal.


It was a rainy day, with the sun coming out for brief moments and, as you can see, we had a little bit of a wait, but it allowed an appreciation for every inch of the beautiful exterior.



Finally… we were inside…


Looking south…


Looking East… toward the Sprint Center, the round building in the center of the photograph.


and even looking up…


and from afar.


Next… a trip to the Opera, Symphony or Ballet… which will it be?  OK, all three!!

  1. Wow. This is gorgeous! We have a new Performing Arts Centre opening in Burlington, but ours is not nearly as sweepingly glamorous as this one. (of course, we are also a smaller city)

  2. What a lot of great shots! Thanks for introducing me to this place.

  3. I enjoy the pictures. Thanks much.
    I do hope to tour it sometime soon.
