The Art of (Fountains)

Our photography series, “The Art of (KC),” brings you beautiful, thought-provoking and compelling images of what makes our city tick.

This week, we’re focused on fountains. And it’s no surprise that with more than 200 fountains, Kansas City is appropriately-dubbed “The City of Fountains.” In 1992, the city added a fountain symbol and our “City of Fountains” moniker to the city’s logo. So, we’re taking a look at some of the fountains you may know and a few more you may not.
