The Kansas City Art Institute Architecture & Innovation 1885-2020
by Cydney E. Millstein and designed by Jeffrey M. Isom
This new book takes readers on a fascinating journey of the transformation of the Kansas City Art Institute and cements its importance in the architectural history of Kansas City. It follows the college’s nomadic beginning in 1885 as the amateur Sketch Club to the current architecturally diverse, award-winning sixteen-acre campus. Archival photos and plans demonstrate how architects and landscape architects created a meaningful and diverse place of distinction, unlike anywhere else in Kansas City.
