Vanderslice Hall Closed for Renovations May 10-18

Phase III work begins on Vanderslice Hall this week and will proceed throughout the summer. Vanderslice Hall will not be accessible from May 10-18, which means that every department will be relocated. Each department will be displaced for a different period of time. The reason for this is due to the type of work happening in Phase III, including the addition of an elevator and refurbishment of floors and spaces. While we realize it is inconvenient, this is for the safety of our employees, students and visitors. During renovation, each department will relocate to various offices around campus. Below is a list by department that includes dates they will be out of Vanderslice and their temporary location. Please note that all phone extensions will remain the same during construction. If you have questions, please contact Kelly Walker ext. 3301, This information can also be found on the website and signage around campus. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work to improve our facilities!

A beautiful spring evening set the stage on April 26 when 500 peopl gathered on campus to enjoy the totality of our exclusive pop-up shop ArtPop, which raised more than $300,000 for student scholarships. Guests enjoyed specialty cocktails by Lifted Spirits, Extra Virgin, Café Sebastienne and Café Trio while wandering the 13 studios to view and purchase student artwork. They reveled in the live music of Victor & Penny and Julia Hale and enjoyed delicious, festive fare. Special thanks to the Honorary Chairs of this event Frank Wewers, KCAI Trustee and his wife Helen and Event Chairs Scott Heidmann and Ken Petti for making ArtPop a magical evening. The money raised at ArtPop makes a tremendous difference in the lives of our students. At KCAI, we welcome brilliant young artists to our campus to develop their talent and creativity, regardless of their financial circumstances. Thank you to all our friends and sponsors for your generosity and making our student’s dreams come true. See photos from ArtPop here.
