Kansas City museum gets $1M gift
KANSAS CITY (AP) — A Kansas City museum has been awarded a $1 million grant for education programs.
The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art said in a release that the museum received the $1 million grant from the David T. Beals III Charitable Trust. Beals was a former Trustee of the museum. The museum says the $1 million grant will be used for education programs during its 12-month period.
The museum says because of the lack of arts programs in many schools, the museum's education programs give students a chance to experience original works of art and explore their own artistic abilities.
