Nelson-Atkins At Home

Readers may remember the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum (located in Kansas City) from the 07-17-2005 Scout Report. While the museum is currently welcoming limited numbers of visitors into its spaces, its revived Nelson-Atkins At Home section welcomes users to virtually visit. Currently on view is Gordon Parks x Muhammad Ali: The Image of a Champion, 1966/1970, an exhibition based on several meetings between Parks and Ali in 1966 and 1970, that resulted in a photographic portrait of Ali for Life magazine. The virtual exhibition includes a guide with thought-provoking questions for each photograph, as well as slideshows of images and a video with interviews of both the photographer and the champion. Other exhibits in the At Home section include a virtual version of the Nelson-Atkins ShuttleCork fundraiser, normally a two-day in-person event, featuring several short videos and recipes from art history, such as a lemon-raspberry tart related to painter Pieter Claesz. Readers may also enjoy sifting through all of the At Home materials, broadly categorized by purpose (Look, Learn, Listen, and Create) at the top of the page.
