PNC Grow Up Great Gallery
Inspiring Great Futures through Arts Experiences
The PNC Grow Up Great Gallery showcases nearly 200 handprints created by local pre-school students at Growing Futures Early Education Center in Overland Park, Kansas and St. Mark Child & Family Development Center in Kansas City, Missouri.
PNC Bank created the gallery in partnership with the Kauffman Center and the two early education centers, as part of an effort to inspire great futures for local children through memorable arts experiences. The gallery will be updated each year with more children’s handprints. It exemplifies PNC Bank’s signature initiative, PNC Grow Up Great, which supports early childhood education and school readiness for preschoolers in underserved communities.
Located in the Plaza Lobby of the Kauffman Center on Level 2, the PNC Grow Up Great Gallery is open to the public during box office hours, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. It is also open for viewing by ticketholders 90 minutes prior to any performance.
Two videos below show the making of the handprints and an event to reveal the completed art installation on November 19, 2018.
