To most local landscape architects, Hare & Hare is a household name. The firm has left an indelible mark on some of the most iconic and often-visited areas of Kansas City—the Country Club Plaza, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Loose Park, Ward Parkway, and Mission Hills among them.

Father-and-son collaborators Sid and Herbert Hare were part of a synergistic design team assembled by legendary Kansas City developer J.C. Nichols that was internationally recognized for its excellence.

Their 100-year-old legacy is commemorated in this new exhibit.
