The front entrance of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation features two bronze statues of Mr. and Mrs. Kauffman.


It is your right to be uncommon if you can. You seek the opportunity to compete. You desire to take the calculated risk, to dream, to build, yes, even to fail, and to succeed.

— Ewing Marion Kauffman
The arms of the Kauffman Foundation building reach east towards Troost Ave. A pond with two waterfalls is pictured behind the building.
