Capital Campaign

In 2010, M-AAA conducted a Capital Campaign to fund the renovation of our headquarters in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District. The renovation would provide staff with improved offices as well as add presentation spaces for exhibitions and events.

The campaign met its goals and construction began in September 2012. M-AAA celebrated its grand reopening in June 2013.

Mid-America Arts Alliance is grateful to the individuals, corporations, and foundations that contributed to the Capital Campaign.
