Kansas City, MO – Last weekend Grand Arts launched Urban Test Sites, an event series exploring issues of space, architecture, and the lived experience of the city. More than 50 people last Saturday took part in a city-wide scavenger hunt called Kansas City Confidential. And, this weekend, there's an exclusive one-day only museum, the HoMu Cribs walking tour, where the collection of the Brooklyn-based Homeless Museum will be displayed in homes, or cribs, in Kansas City. Belgian Artist Filip Noterdaeme founded the Homeless Museum in 2002, and talked to KCUR?s Laura Spencer about the ideas behind it.
