As a young banker in Denver, Kemper didn't end his love affair with the arts.
"My focus has been to make sure the visual and performing arts are made accessible to everyone," he said.
One of the first things he and his father did was commission a Dale Chihuly sculpture called "Colorado Wildflowers" for UMB's downtown bank lobby.At the time, it was Chihuly's second private installation.
