Kansas City is home to an incredibly vibrant and diverse art scene. The city boasts a variety of museums, galleries, and performance spaces that showcase the work of local, national, and international artists.
One of the premier art institutions in Kansas City is the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. The museum houses an extensive collection of American, European, and Asian art, including works by Monet, Van Gogh, and Picasso. The museum also has a strong contemporary art program, featuring works by emerging and established artists.
Another notable art institution in Kansas City is the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, which focuses on contemporary art and regularly features exhibitions by both local and international artists. The museum is also home to a collection of works by artists such as Warhol, Lichtenstein, and Haring.
In addition to museums, Kansas City also has a thriving gallery scene. Leopold Gallery, located in the heart of Brookside, features art primarily from local and regional artists, but has a following both national and international. We’ve been in operation for over 30 years and in that time have built a reputation for showcasing innovative and exciting works of art.
Our representation of artists is diverse and includes an array of mediums. There's something for everyone here. If you prefer landscapes and cityscapes, there’s Gary Bowling, Louis Copt, Vanessa Lacy, Phil Epp, Mark Cook, and Michael Duane. If you’re more into the contemporary and abstract, check out MJ Rigby, Jerry Moon, William Lobdell, and Mark Brasuell. Photography lovers are sure to love the work of Mike McMullen and Charles Porter. Blown-glass enthusiasts will enjoy pieces by Tyler Kimball and Michael Moran, and fans of Ceramics will admire the talents of Ken and Tina Riesterer and Chandra Beadleston. We also carry the work of kinetic sculpture artist Lyman Whitaker, whose pieces are built to soothe and inspire as the gracefully spin with the wind.
The gallery also offers art consultation services to help individuals and organizations build their collections. We’ve worked on projects for Warner Brothers, H&R Block, the Kansas City Chiefs, GE Aircraft Engines, the US Capitol Building, and many others. We also implement mentoring programs for scores of low-income teenage artists, since we believe that cultural wealth is for everyone.
