Wm.T. & Charlotte Kemper Memorial

This fountain is maintained by City of Fountains Foundation.


This fountain draws its inspiration from the ancient stone bowl in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Rozelle Court as well as from architectural features on the exterior of the Commerce Trust Building across the street. The fountain reflects the simplicity and strength of the Kempers and their commitment to Kansas City. Located in the heart of downtown Kansas City, this fountain successfully blends art, water and technology, three elements key to fountains in the bronze fountain with a granite base and steps. It operates in two modes whicvh address wind problems and reduce endrgy use.
