Johnson County Museum’s popular “REDLINED: Cities, Suburbs, and Segregation” special exhibit will close on Jan. 7 after a yearlong public display.

The exhibit features a deep dive into the history of discriminatory redlining and how it both shaped and was shaped by Johnson County and the Kansas City region.

Redlining refers to the systematic disinvestment of some neighborhoods and populations when private industry and later the federal government funded and supported home purchases for some people and neighborhoods over others.

REDLINED has more than 120 images, ten display cases with original objects and artifacts, and covers more than 2,000 square feet of wall space at the museum located in the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center, 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park.
