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.

  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.
