Kansas City, MO – A gallery talk takes place each Sunday through September 21 at 1:00 pm about a work on view.

Conversation Pieces at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, July 11-September 28, 2008

From the Kemper's website: "Staged in a gallery full of chairs, tables, and a microphone, Conversation Pieces fuses eleven works of art from the Kemper Museum's permanent collection with eleven public talks. For each week of the exhibition, a different work of art will be on view and the focus of an informal presentation, facilitating numerous opportunities for informative exchange, lively discussion, and new discovery of the Museum's rich holdings."

Produced in collaboration with KCUR 89.3 FM, Kemper ARTcasts is the Kemper Museum's podcast series.
