Today, I collected my 3rd trading card! 

So art really is not my thing, at least which is what I thought.  After my adventure this afternoon, I have once again proven myself wrong.  Wow, what a beautiful collection and great experience. 

Albrecht Kemper Art Museum

Off of Frederick Avenue between Noyes Blvd. and 36th Street sit many huge, extravagant homes.  I have always adored them while driving past.  Today I stepped inside one of them, a Georgian style mansion that was built around 1933 as the home of William and Lean Albrecht.  William Albrecht founded the Western Tablet Company, later known as Westab and is known today as Mead Products.  The mansion was given to the St. Joseph Art League in 1965 after Mr. & Mrs. Albrecht’s passing,  and today houses one of Midwest’s finest collections of 18th, 19th & 20th Century Art.

I was amazed at the collection and exhibits, also the education and classes offered.  Not only did I enjoy the gallery, I was able to tour the entire facility including what used to be the Albrecht’s living area.  Every step I took something beautiful and breathtaking to see.  What a 2-for-1!

Touring the museum today I gained a new appreciation for art.  I strongly encourage you to take time to visit the Albrecht Kemper Museum of Art, located at 2818 Frederick Avenue in
St. Joseph, MO.  Not only to collect your trading cards, but to see a collection of art that is one of the best around.  Also to learn more about the Albrecht’s, the ‘Big Chief’ and see the gorgeous detail of this mansion.  It truly is a hidden gem.

James,  Thanks for visiting my blog.  It is not good business to advertise on someone elses blog and I do believe it is against Activerain policy.  If you want to advertise, I am sure Activerain would sell you a subscription.  In the future I will report you, so please don't push it:)  Have a great day.
