The museum originated in 1913 with the foundation of the St. Joseph Art League, twelve women who sought to increase public awareness and understanding of the arts. With the hope of establishing a public art museum in St. Joseph, the League acquired the William Merritt Chase painting 'Venetian Balcony'.

Springfield Art Museum offers new glasses to improve art experience for visitors with color vision deficiencies

Did you know?! Our friends over at the Springfield Art Museum just debuted several pairs of EnChroma glasses for people experiencing colorblindness.
😎 Along with The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art is proud to be one of only three museums in the state of Missouri to offer this experience. Our glasses are free to borrow for the duration of your visit. Just ask about it at the front desk!

#NowOnView We decided to mix it up in our Barclay Gallery by highlighting #MissouriArtists!
🤩 Thomas Baker King was a talented, witty artist whose work was primarily shared with friends and not exhibited publicly during his lifetime. He spent his career working as an insurance underwriter, and he and his wife were an active presence in the mid-century Kansas City arts and social scene. Many of his works are sharp observations of the fashion, conversations, and minutia of the business world. 💃🥂 See it now at the #AKMA!

✨ Elaina's keen design skills were a major strength for the Marketing department, building the museum's brand identity with real-world collateral, and supporting special events experiences. Thank you, Elaina!

🎤IN THEIR OWN WORDS…
Thanks to Peregrine Honig, Calvin Arsenia, and Cynthia Herrington for speaking about their film “Summer in Hindsight” today in the AKMA Auditorium.

About the concept:
“It looks like we traveled all over the world to shoot this movie. But those are right here in Kansas City. The Nelson-Atkins, the National Museum of Toys and Miniatures, Powell Gardens. You never get to shoot like that.” - Peregrine Honig

“What did that feel like that first morning when we weren’t allowed to leave the house? I want this film to feel different with each viewing. We’ll look back on it and feel different about each time we watch it. We can laugh about it now, but it’s not so funny.” - Calvin Arsenia

“How do we create a scene using this space? Using the wardrobe, using the light, and using this tunnel. We were able to alter the scenes—a visual gag.” -Cynthia Herrington

What the audience said…
“Thank you for making this into an artistic thing—in this weird time that we all lived though. Calvin, wow. I knew I trusted where it was going to go. It’s was not only a visual piece of art, it was also a showcase of this incredible time in history.” - audience member

“I thought it was a feast for the eyes, but I also enjoyed the music.” - audience member

Thanks for putting the Membership Show Awards Ceremony on line.
Thanks for providing such a perfect luncheon for 4 VERY hungry LAAs (that's Legal Administrative Assistants in the real world). Food and atmosphere to die for!
Missouri Business Podcast The crew and I ran around the area this weekend as a trial run of our upcoming Commerce Connection Quest. We managed to take check-in photos at 150 businesses around town and the surrounding area. Our participants in next month’s Quest only need to get to all 100 vendors that will take part to earn the vacation stay prize. This is an example of how a post will work. That’s all they have to do to check-in. We hope that you will choose to support the community in playing in this fun event and give the residents something fun to do. Even if you do not play, we would love your support however you can. Looking forward to seeing everyone’s posts over the next month – John Piazza Norton
