While the Museum is closed to the public and we maintain social distancing, we invite you to connect with us and with each other through #KemperConnect. This new initiative—available on the Museum's Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter feeds—shares different aspects of the Museum throughout the week and is designed to spark creative and intellectual conversation around art.

Join us for thought-provoking ​interactive posts, activities for all ages, and live programs as we explore new ways to ​engage with the Museum's collection and exhibitions. Find out more here >>
