Underwriting Opportunities


“It is in the best interest of every business – no matter its size – to support the arts. Beyond their intrinsic value, the arts add to the economic vitality and quality of life of our communities and unleash new ideas, both in and out of the workplace, foster dialogues and increase understanding among people. An active and supportive relationship between business and the arts is vitally important for an innovative and prosperous community.” -Henry Bloch Philanthropist, Arts Visionary and Co-Founder and Chairman Emeritus of H&R Block

“The Arts are fundamental to the heritage of Kansas City and our region. Our arts and culture landscape not only provides Kansas Citians with an excellent quality of life, but also serves as an economic driver in our community – generating revenue, employment and tourism. We’re fortunate to enjoy the incredible asset represented by our creative community. It’s vital to our city’s collective personality, our economy and our status as a world-class city.” -Sly James Mayor, Kansas City, Mo

Art is what makes this community special. I think KC without the arts is like barbecue without the sauce. It is vital for us in every neighborhood that people know about culture, history, the future and how to dream. I think the arts, in all their forms, encapsulate that. Quinton Lucas Mayor, Kansas City, MO
