Do you wonder why the lights never go off at the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s Epperson House? Come see the work at the UMKC Department of Architecture, Urban Planning and Design annual open house.

The department’s award-winning studio project, Washington Wheatley Neighborhood, will be on display. The senior studio in urban planning and design completed the study in the spring of 2008. In October, it was awarded Best Project and Collaboration by the American Planning Association of Missouri. In addition, the project received an Audubon/Toyota grant to implement ideas developed in the neighborhood study.

WHEN: 1 to 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 21. No RSVP required. WHERE: 5200 Cherry St., Kansas City, Mo. 64110
