In the April 1 issue of Star Magazine, writer Steve Paul complained about the loss over the years of several old homes in the Southmoreland neighborhood, “Architecture a-z.” He neglected to celebrate the Kansas City Art Institute’s rescue and renovation of the beautiful three-story, red brick Cunningham mansion at 4538 Warwick Blvd., now the home of the college’s Jannes Library and Learning Center.
In 2003, this building won the Historic Kansas City Foundation’s Preservation Award for Rehabilitation.
