The Art Of The Automobile
Each year the Kansas City Art Institute hosts the Art of the Cars Concours, a gathering of exotic vehicles whose purposes extend far beyond transportation.
This year's event takes place on Sunday and includes Ginger Rogers’ 1929 Duesenberg convertible; a 1907 Mason Touring car that’s been in the same Kansas family for 105 years; and a Bugatti
