KCAI’s Archives are located in the basement of Jannes Library. Materials in the Archives document the history of the Kansas City Art Institute from 1885 to the present time. The Archives include KCAI publications, exhibition files, pamphlets, posters, maps, photographs, audiotapes, films, and scrapbooks. We do not have art in the archive. Our subjects include (but are not limited to) the KCAI campus and its buildings, KCAI faculty, and art exhibitions and other special events occurring throughout KCAI’s history. An appointment is required in order to view archives materials. To schedule an appointment or for assistance with Archives queries contact Elizabeth Davis via email at email@example.com or by phone at 816-802-3395.
