Check these two rather classy clips featuring big money to bring an the UMKC Arts Campus to Downtown Kansas City.

TKC NOTE . . . They always play classical music in Kansas City when somebody cuts a check with a lot of zeros.

The latest example . . .

Kauffman Foundation Announces $20 Million For Downtown Arts Campus

"It's been two years since officials at the University of Missouri-Kansas City unveiled a plan for a downtown arts campus, which would relocate the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance. On Wednesday, the Muriel McBrien Kauffman Foundation announced a pledge of $20 million to support the effort."

And here's how it looked from the vantage of the Greater Kansas City Chamber Of Commerce . . .



Muriel McBrien Kauffman Foundation offers grant to the UMKC Conservatory - KC Chamber

"The Muriel McBrien Kauffman Foundation hands the UMKC Conservatory a grant to help the KC Chamber meet one of their Big 5 goals."

Obviously, this will benefit Kansas City cultural life and education despite the fact that most of the plebs in this town living paycheck to paycheck might not notice.

Speakers also speculated the move could add vibrancy to downtown by attracting the important 18-to-25-year-old age group to downtown.
