COMMUNITY CONVERSATION SESSION:
FUTURE PARKING AT THE KANSAS CITY MUSEUM
Thursday, July 27, 2017
5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Outside of the Kansas City Museum
Free | NO RSVP Necessary

With construction on Corinthian Hall about to start, the Kansas City Museum seeks public feedback and input that will guide the development of a parking solution for the Museum when it re-opens in 2019. The Museum anticipates at least 50,000 visitors in 2019, and it is time for the renovation planning team to explore a multimodal transportation plan for how visitors will arrive to and access the Museum.

Join us on Thursday, July 27 in the Parkland just west of and parallel to Waldrond Ave. and adjacent to the Kansas City Museum to take a look at parking layout concepts for cars and school/tour buses*, and to provide feedback and input so that the Museum may begin, in the coming months, to design and develop a parking solution for 2019.

Feel free to stop by at any time during the event. We would be grateful for your participation. Your feedback and input continues to be meaningful to our process.

Tents will be set up and bottled water will be provided.

*Please note that future community conversation sessions will be scheduled to discuss walkability, as well as access to the Museum via bikes, public transportation, and shuttles.

For more information, contact Paul Gutierrez at paul.gutierrez@kcmo.org or 816.513.0726.

Join Joseph Wright, Operations Manager of the Warkoczewski Observatory at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and other members of the Astronomical Society of Kansas (ASKC) for an evening of sky tours and discussion of the upcoming 2017 Great American Total Solar Eclipse. The astronomers will be on-site to answer questions, share views of the sky, and will have meteorites on hand for your examination as well as information to help you be prepared for this summer’s spectacular sky show.

Following this event, addition observing can be done at Warkoczewski Observatory at the University of Missouri-Kansas City until 11:00pm. *weather permitting.

Wright is also co-coordinator with David Young for the National Solar Observatory’s Citizen CATE experiment to image the solar corona during the eclipse. They are organizing and training observers at 7 sites along the Path of Totality.  Wright is an awarding winning astronomer who recently completed two mission flights aboard NASA/DLR SOFIA airborne observatory.  This is a specially converted 747SP with a 2.5m telescope peering out the side and his flight achieved an altitude of 45,200ft during the imaging flight.

FREE SUMMER CONCERT: The Phantastics
Friday, August 11
7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. 

Historic Grounds, Kansas City Museum
3218 Gladstone Blvd., KCMO 64123
Free | NO RSVP

The Phantastics are a nine-member band from Kansas City specializing in tantalizing, genre-blending dance floor activators. In 2015, the music group was crowned “Kansas City’s best party band” by the Kansas City Star. But “party” doesn’t encompass the range in which The Phantastics reign. Musicianship and diversity are at the core of their success. Expect to hear Rock, Rap, Dance, Funk, Jazz, and Soul all incorporated into a seamless, winding river of music. “The band that can do it all,” according to I Heart Local Music, has shared the stage with some of music’s most legendary acts including George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic. The Phantastics were formed in December of 2010 and have been trying to save live music ever since.
