|Nelson-Atkins Museum Social Outing for 50 Plus offered on Jan. 17|
Experience the newly renovated galleries at the beautiful Nelson-Atkins Museum during a social outing being offered in mid-January by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
This Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art Social Walk will take participants to the museum in Kansas City, Mo., known for its neoclassical architecture and extensive collection of Asian art. The Nelson-Atkins is an encyclopedic art museum whose collections spans a period of over 4000 years, from ancient to contemporary art. The museum’s collections encompass various geographical areas - Far and Near East, Africa, Europe, and the Americas - and art fields - including painting, sculpture, photography, archaeology, architecture, design, and decorative arts. Participants in the Jan. 17 outing can bring a friend or meet some along the way. Lunch will be at the museum's Rozzelle Court restaurant, with meal costs on your own.
