Directions to the Gallery
The University of Central Missouri is located in Warrensburg, which is 50 miles southeast of Kansas City at the intersection of U.S. Highway 50 and Missouri Highway 13.

From the north via Interstate 70:
From Interstate 70 East, take Hwy 13 (Exit 49, Warrensburg-Higginsville). Travelers using Interstate 70 West, will also take Exit 49 to access Hwy 13. Drive south to Warrensburg, about 16 miles. Stay on Hwy 13, which becomes Maguire, the main north-south street through Warrensburg. Continue on Maguire to Broad Street. You will see a sign that says the University of Central Missouri. Continue on past Broad Street to the next traffic light, or Clark Street. Make a right hand turn onto campus. The Gallery of Art & Design is located in the Art Center, one block west of Maguire Street.

The campus has two visitor parking lots, both off Maguire. For the north lot, turn west on South Street; it is the second driveway to the south. For the south lot, turn west on Clark Street; the lot is at the intersection of Clark and Holden. Both have red-topped attendant’s booths that help visitors locate the lots. Parking is free to visitors. All lots are available for parking after 5pm on the Weekdays, and all day on the Weekends.
