Party Arty

February 2, 2019

For more than 25 years, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art’s Young Friends of Art have hosted Kansas City’s premier fundraising event for young professionals – Party Arty.

Inspired by the museum’s exhibition Napoleon: Power and Splendor, Party Arty 2019 will throw orthodoxy aside to create an evening of extravagance, unrestraint, and rebellion.

As one of five major museum fundraising events, money raised through Party Arty supports education efforts—introducing art to over 70,000 school-aged children through workshops, cultural festivals, and community outreach initiatives, and helps maintain free access to over 500,000 visitors each year.
