"Vision of a Downtown Arts Campus" video by the KC Public Library
A Paris of the Plains 2.0? Peter Witte, dean of the UMKC Conservatory of Music & Dance thinks building a Downtown Campus for the Arts could do wonders for Kansas City. The Conservatory, along with other UMKC arts departments, plus the KC Rep and KCUR, could all be housed in the proposed 600-student campus next to the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. The Kansas City Art Institute, too, could play a role in this project, which has its eye squarely on making downtown KC an arts & culture hub for the entire region.
