Jannes Library & Learning Center
The 19,000-square-foot mansion on Warwick Boulevard provides the perfect setting for the Jannes Library and Learning Center. Once the Cunningham Estate, this home now holds KCAI’s extensive and growing library collections of over 30,000 volumes, including circulating books, reference resources, special collections, rare books, 100 print periodicals, eBooks and several electronic databases. The third floor houses the campus computer lab, where students have use of over 20 computers, flatbed scanners, and access to the Adobe Creative Suite.

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. 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, art exhibitions, and other special events occurring throughout KCAI’s history. An appointment is required in order to view archives materials.
