He currently serves on the Ferris State University Advisory Board for the Doctorate in Community College Leadership program where he teaches, mentors students, and serves on dissertation committees.

Tuesday, November 10, 2020Membership Meeting

Chamber Luncheon -The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art: A History

Kristie Wolferman will tell her story of how she came to write her book, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art: A History. She’ll share the serendipity of people, circumstances, and events that led to Kansas City acquiring a world class art museum. Expect to hear the history on how Mary McAfee Atkins, William Rockhill Nelson, Nelson’s family, and the trustees of their estates wanted an art collection accessible to all people in the region. Learn about the uniqueness of the museum from the beginning with innovations in construction and the collection. Understand the importance of education from the beginning of the museum. See the future of the museum, one of the gems of our city, and how it depends on our support as the museum continues to evolve to meet the needs of its patrons.

 

Wolferman's book is available on Amazon, at the Nelson-Atkins bookstore, at Rainy Day Books, and at some Barnes and Noble stores. Her book will not be sold at the luncheon but she is happy to autograph at the event if you have a book with you.

 

Thank you to our sponsor:
