In February 2014 the Belger Arts Center will join forces with architectural historian Cydney Millstein, and photographer Richard Welnowski for a very special look at Kansas City from World War II and after. Velocity of Change: The Evolution of Albert Kahn's Pratt & Whitney Plant in Kansas City, documents the progression of a complex that includes a 3,000,000 square foot manufacturing plant originally built in 1943 in less than nine months.
"The Belger Arts Center is amazing in its presence in Kansas City; not quite a museum, not a university gallery, not a commercial gallery. It is an entity in itself that defies definition. It is an incredible resource and contribution to the visual arts in Kansas City."
- Dr. Kathleen Desmond, REVIEW magazine, November 2004
