To Kansas City
After checking in, with Sharon's urging, I took another Uber to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. I spent about two hours wandering through the museum. The museum exceed my expectations. The collection includes a Caravaggio [John the Baptist], an Hieronymus Bosch, several Van Goghs and the largest public collection of Thomas Hart Benton. For years, Sharon had a Thomas Hart Benton poster hanging in the East View and Marina Point houses. There were two special exhibitions: Through the Eyes of Picasso and Dreams of Kings: A Jade Suite for Eternity. The Picasso exhibit was very good.
