Kansas City Art Institute Students Create Murals for Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

As the shell-like concrete curves take shape on the $413 million Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, the building is about 75 percent complete. The most noticeable change last week - installation started on the first pieces of exterior glass for the grand lobby.

Kansas City, MO – Inside what will be the home for ballet and opera, the Muriel Kauffman Theatre, sixteen Kansas City Art Institute students are currently at work on a four-story mural. KCUR's Laura Spencer stopped by the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts recently to check on the progress.
