Kansas City Nelson-Atkins Museum Of Art Ranked Mediocre #23!!!



Remember that the so-called listicle is often just a clickbait effort to lure people to websites and it's now frowned upon among marketers because so many folks easily dismiss the effort.

Still, some are better than others and this one features a lot of info:

Insider: 25 best museums in America, ranked!

Local mention . . .

23. NELSON-ATKINS MUSEUM OF ART . . .

"It's best known for the giant shuttlecocks on the lawn outside the building."

Like it or not, it's hard to argue with as much . . . And while other lists may disagree, this one seems about right.

Nelson kicks ass. At any given time you're only seeing 6% of their actual displays. Considering it's free it is very nice.

Of course this listicle is preposterous. But like the taunting boy said, "Made ya look, made ya look!"

8:28--Well, Craig, since you and your wife got married at a brewery, I doubt you've been to even three of these museums, so who cares what you think.

Being low on a list of 'bests" is not being mediocre. Even if such an arbitrary clickbait list has any meaning, which is doubtful. It means (assuming you believe such a list can be valid and meaningful) that somebody considers the Nelson Atkins one of the best art museums in the United States. Which it is.

Fact is, the Nelson Atkins is one of two things in Kansas City that cannot becalled mediocre, "OK for Kansas City," generic or second-rate. (The other standout is the Kauffman Center.)

Some of y'all are so steeped in mediocrity that you don't recognize excellence when you see it. Or else you just don't know nuthin'.
