Dinners at the Kansas City Symposium will take place at three notable venues:
Friday, Sept. 16
The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
Participants will enjoy cocktails and dinner – and the chance to peruse the galleries and the sculpture park – at the symposium’s host institution. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is known for its encyclopedic collection of art from nearly every continent and culture.
Saturday, Sept. 17
On Saturday, participants will enjoy cocktails and a barbecue dinner at Kansas City’s Union Station. The Beaux-Arts building contains a Grand Hall with an ornate ceiling and the Grand Plaza, or North Waiting Room.
Sunday, Sept. 18
World War I Museum and Memorial
In 1921, a crowd gathered to see Allied commanders dedicate the site of the Liberty Memorial. Construction of the classical Egyptian Revival-style monument was completed in 1926. In 2004, the Museum and Memorial was designated by Congress as the nation’s official World War I Museum. Participants will have a chance to view the national museum and memorial during dinner and cocktails on Sunday.
