Throughout the year, the New York Post has regularly posted articles, galleries and city guides that add up to one monumental story: a travel guide through each of the 50 states.

And now it’s Missouri’s turn, and that means Kansas City steps into the spotlight. Sure, the story includes obligatory mentions of the city’s barbecue and jazz cultures, but an overwhelming portion of the story centers on the local arts scene, a creative mix that fills a wide-ranging spectrum from independent galleries to world-renowned museums like the Nelson-Atkins, Kemper and Nerman.

If you’re inspired to spend the rest of the week enmeshed in Kansas City’s arts community, use this daily blog as a guide for navigating upcoming art openings and exhibits authored by the tireless Steve Brisendine, a writer/journalist/painter/curator who has become a veritable fixture of the local arts scene.
