Art work from Kansas City Art Institute
Few other cities offer such a multitude of gallery venues that welcome exhibitions of student work; the kinds of opportunities KCAI students have to collaborate with professional artists and exhibit their work is unheard of in cities like New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Kansas City is alive with art, dance, theatre, eclectic local attractions, international events, and a wide variety of music, including jazz for which the city is famous. 

A hub of visual arts activity, the Crossroads Arts District in downtown Kansas City has energized the city and garnered national recognition for Kansas City as a centre for the visual and performing arts. The Crossroads, and a cluster of galleries further downtown, show contemporary and experimental art as part of the Urban Culture Project.
