“wish it had a museum quality gallery onsite”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

I know they opened a space in the Crossroads, but not impressed by it. Wish they'd open a curated, top-notch gallery on their site.
Wish they had a campus that looked... (I don't know... more artistic?).
They are bookended by two great art museums, and should rise to the occasion.

“Amazing Place”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

Located in the heart of Kansas City and easily accessible to like attractions (two art museums in walking distance) the Art Institute is an amazing place. They are home to a hands on, multi-approach system to teaching art, offer classes to all ages and is an accredited college. They also have one of the most unique buildings on site with Mineral Hall.
