Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art
2818 Frederick Ave., St. Joseph, MO 64506 - United States
A work of art itself, the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art houses one of the finest collections of American Art in the Midwest. The former William Albrecht home provides the perfect backdrop for works by artists including Mary Cassatt, Robert Henri and Edward Hopper.
The Museum originated in 1913 with the foundation of the St. Joseph Art League–twelve women who sought to increase public awareness and understanding of the arts.
Through special exhibitions, educational programs, performance events and publications, the Albrecht-Kemper serves as a cultural arts center for Northwest Missouri.
