So many examples of Art Deco architecture exist in KC that the Historic Kansas City Foundation offers Art Deco bus tours
. See how some of these buildings are being used 80 years later as HKCF guides lead you through downtown and midtown (and keep the bus's air conditioner turned up). At press time, today's tour was already wait-list-only, but reservations are being taken for next Sunday, August 26. The tour costs $18 a person and leaves from the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library (4801 Main) at 1 p.m. For information or tickets, see historickansascity.org
or call 816-931-8448.
