Kansas City Arts Scene Recovery After COVID Could Take YEARS

TKC isn't a cheerleader for the creative-class but it's a fact that Kansas City has a reputation as a cultural hub of the American Midwest.

Yes, we're only competing with dump truck burgs and vapid suburbs but, nevertheless, this cowtown is an artsy mecca.

Who cares, all they do is litter the city with graffiti that they call art. Crayons to spray paint. What a giant leap.

Not one mention of whatzisname dissing the KCPD. We aren’t the Bloch’s but we are not supporting the Nelson now. I guess the Bloch’s have private security.

Wrong how? KCPD diss? Bloch’s having private security? How? I know I’m a few commas short of them in the net worth department.
