As ‘The Monuments Men’ movie nears its opening, KC celebrates its ties

Six of the more than 300 Monuments Men and women either worked for the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art — two later became directors — or maintained strong connections with it. To honor the group’s achievement, the museum is creating a display of manuscripts, newspaper clippings, postcards and biographies of the gallery’s Monuments Men.
