Help survey new fountains and sculptures

Kansas City Adopt A Monument offers training to individuals interested in helping survey new fountains and sculptures as they are added to cities in the metropolitan area.  Teams of two work together to gather information, measure, and photograph new outdoor public art. These surveys will be used to add information to our website and will be sent to the Smithsonian for inclusion in their Inventory of American Art database.

 

Clean our sculptures and monuments

If your neighborhood sculptures are covered with dirt and moss, professional conservators will provide all materials needed to help you and other volunteers clean your outdoor public art. We will schedule a time when it is convenient for you and offer our volunteers to assist if needed.

 

Give guided walking tours of Plaza fountains and sculpture

Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, out of town visitors, local students and many membership organization like to have walking tours of the historic Country Club Plaza.  Our volunteers are trained to give factual information that can supplement  school curriculum or provide an added attraction to their visit to our city.  We combine the wonderful architecture of the Plaza and their incredible collection of art in our one hour tours.
