18 Aug Kansas City Art Institute (KCAI) Receives $50,000 Grant from the Muriel McBrien Kauffman Foundation
Funding from the Muriel McBrien Kauffman Foundation will be divided equally between the college’s annual fund initiatives and a presenting sponsorship of ArtPop, the biennial fundraising event. The KCAI Fund helps to close the gap between student tuition and the actual costs to educate our students, while ArtPop raises money specifically for scholarships and making an art and design education affordable for families.
ArtPop, KCAI’s foremost fundraising event, has proven success in attracting art and design enthusiasts to campus with an average of 500 attendees in a single night! The alternative to the biennial Art & Design Auction, which showcases the work of faculty and alumni, ArtPop provides an immersive experience for visitors to interact with KCAI students during a preview of the extremely popular End of Semester Student Exhibition and Sale.
Founded in 1885, the Kansas City Art Institute (KCAI) is a premier, private four-year college of art and design accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and by the Higher Learning Commission. In addition to exceptional academic programs, KCAI offers a full range of student support services, a low student to teacher ratio, internships, and professional preparation and development opportunities.
