Bloch Building Opening Events

The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is celebrating the much-anticipated completion of the new Bloch Building. This architectural marvel, designed by Steven Holl, is an important part of the Museum overall transformation. Before the building opens on June 9, we are hosting a variety of preview celebrations. We hope you will join us as we mark this important milestone and be among the first to experience the Nelson-Atkins’s expansion, world-class collection and groundbreaking inaugural exhibitions.

Baron BMW is the presenting sponsor of the Bloch Building Opening.
