Indian Summer 

After seven years of planning and construction, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art opens its new American Indian galleries today. Among the 200 or so pieces that will be on display are nearly three dozen objects — masks, totem poles and textiles among them — donated by Morton and Estelle Sosland. The Soslands have deep ties to the museum; they also gifted the Shuttlecocks. Explore the overhauled space — organized by geography and culture — from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today at the Nelson-Atkins (4525 Oak, 816-751-1278). See nelson-atkins.org for details, including information about opening events this weekend.
Wed., Nov. 11, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 2009
