As a nod to the Kansas City Art Institute's 125th anniversary, an exhibition at the Nelson-Atkins Museum explores the school's photographic legacy from the 1960s to the present. "Thinking Photography: Five Decades at the Kansas City Art Institute" features works by nearly 30 notable KCAI alumni, including Joe Deal, Robert ParkeHarrison, and Mark Osterman.
Kansas City, MO – KCUR's Laura Spencer spoke with two artists in the exhibition: recent graduate Robert Heishman ('08), and E.G. Schempf ('72), who entered the photography department in its early years.
