The Artspace houses the Kansas City Art Institute’s permanent collection, including more than 1,000 paintings, sculptures, ceramics, works on paper, decorative art and collectibles. It also has a special holding of prints by Landfall Press of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The Institute began collecting art in 1885, and the permanent collection that grew from it today serves as a learning tool for Institute students, as well as a popular attraction for visitors. It has acquired works by international and local artists, including a collection of more than 100 signs and sculptures by Missouri artist Jesse Howard.

Past exhibitions have covered a broad spectrum of subjects, including depictions of race in contemporary art, two-dimensional works by Kansas City artists, and cryptozoology.
