KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art will soon display a new type of art — a mini-golf course. And it wants your help.

The museum plans to build a nine-hole mini golf course on its grounds and it's taking ideas from the public.

According to the Nelson-Atkins website, the goal is to "present a playful, one-of-a-kind interactive experience that highlights the museum's collection in new and unexpected ways."

"We are asking them to take objects from our permanent collection and reinterpret them into an experience that visitors can enjoy," said Casey Claps, the manager of Strategic Initiative at the museum.

The deadline to submit ideas is November 30. The museum will then select 10 designs for 10 holes. One hole will be used for off-site promotions.

The course is expected to open late spring of 2018.
