Sturges Word Designs Parking Map to Support Kauffman Center Opening

This September Kansas City will experience a whole new performance venue with the grand opening of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, scheduled for Sunday, September 18.

Sturges Word was happy to support the center’s grand opening with the Insider’s Guide to Parking — a clearly illustrated parking and driving map of the area around the Kauffman Center. It is hoped that the map, which is available as a full color PDF download, will help the 20,000 anticipated grand-opening visitors find parking, shuttles, trolleys and other transportation to ensure that they not only experience the new Kauffman Center, but enjoy their visit to Downtown Kansas City.

Designed and illustrated by the team at Sturges Word, the map shows surface and underground parking lots, trolley and shuttle stops and the Max bus route, as well as the many other attractions near the Kauffman Center. It is an excerpt of a larger printed parking map that Sturges Word designed for the Downtown Council of Kansas City, Missouri. That larger map shows parking and attractions in all of the districts that comprise downtown Kansas City.

“Sturges Word has been located in downtown Kansas City for almost 20 years,” says Linda Word, principal and creative director. “We are so pleased with all of the recent development, and we hope this PDF will help visitors enjoy not only their visit to the Kauffman Center, but their visit downtown. It’s an area rich with culture, and with additions like the center, it’s only getting richer.”
