Three Humboldt penguins from the Kansas City Zoo have visited the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. In a talk about re-opening plans between the museum and the zoo, the directors joked about the idea of bringing penguins to show them the exhibited art. Julián Zugazagoitia, the director of the museum has stated that they were "were concerned first and foremost for the security of the birds and the art" and decided what rooms would be available to the birds. According to him the penguins "felt more comfortable" at the Baroque section than with the Monet painting "Water Lilies".
