MAYA : The Great Jaguar Rises

Jun 06

LOCATION: UNION STATION

MAYA invites guests on a journey to discover the mysteries of the Maya culture
and includes over 300 stunning original artifacts, many of which have never before left Guatemala

“This major exhibition spotlights the mystery, legacy and resilience of one of the world’s great civilizations — the Maya of Central America — a powerful culture that rose in the tropical rainforests of Guatemala thousands of years ago,” George Guastello, Union Station president and CEO, said. “Through educational experiences like MAYA, we promote understanding and appreciation for peoples from around the world. Their traditions. Their achievements. And their lasting impact on the global tapestry of humanity. In so doing, we hope to bring an undeniable connectedness that transcends time and place.”

 

There’s always something to see or do in Kansas City – the city we love –  we would like to use our Events page to show some love and highlight some of those Local Happenings. Get out there and check out a show, see an exhibit or catch a game. These are the events that we’ll be attending and hope to see you there!
