The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art is a non-profit art museum located in the Sugar Creek neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri, United States. It has two locations: its main branch is located at 4420 Warwick Blvd., and a satellite gallery is located at 4415 Warwick Blvd. The Kemper Museum was founded in 1976 to collect and exhibit contemporary art. The collection includes over 1,400 paintings, sculptures, photographs, and other art objects. The museum has hosted solo exhibitions by notable artists including Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Edward Ruscha, Sol LeWitt, and Wayne Thiebaud. It also hosts special events such as artist talks, lectures, and concerts.

The Kemper Museum’s primary facilities are located on two sites in Kansas City. The main branch of the museum is located at 4420 Warwick Blvd., Kansas City, Missouri, United States, and features the Kemper Museum Galleries, a gift shop, outdoor sculpture court, Ruth & Harold Chenven Education Center with studios for painting and drawing classes as well as exhibition space for visiting artists’ installations. The 4420 Warwick location also houses the administrative offices of the Kemper Museum.

The second site is located at 4415 Warwick Blvd., Kansas City, Missouri, United States. This facility was designed by architect Toshiko Mori and opened in 2003 with 1650 square feet of exhibition space dedicated to hosting exhibitions of contemporary art from around the world. Since 2011, the 4415 Warwick complex has housed an additional exhibition space for artists of national reputation.

In 2010, the Kemper Museum undertook a major renovation of its primary facility at 4420 Warwick Blvd. The exterior envelope was restored and a new parking lot was created. The main galleries were redesigned to provide additional display space for the permanent collection as well as the special exhibition program. These enhancements have increased annual visitation from 30,000 to 100,000.

The Kemper Museum was founded in 1976 by the late owner of the Kansas City Star, John Whitworth, and his wife, Mary Louise Campbell Whitworth. The Kemper Museum’s collection began after their son, Robert M. Whitworth, presented them with a small sculpture by American artist Man Ray in 1966 to celebrate the opening of the family’s first R.C. Whitworth furniture store on the Country Club Plaza. By 1975, the Kemper Art Museum had opened its doors at 4420 Warwick with only 400 art objects in its collection.
