Mobank Community

Your vision. Our community

Thinkers. Dreamers. Doers. Entrepreneurs. They’re not just the building blocks of our local economy. They’re the mobank community, a collection of visionary leaders, inspired artists, powerful minds, impassioned citizens and wunderkind makers.

Culture

Artboards

Mobank's tradition of Rock. Paper. Scissors. (RPS) competitions goes back to 2002 when we held our first company-wide tournament. It was too much fun to keep to ourselves, so in 2009 we organized a community-wide competition.

RPS takes place the first Friday of October at Mobank Crossroads as a way to bring the local business community together for some good, clean fun as teams throw down to see who will become the next RPS champion. Any company in the Kansas City area is invited to play – just sign up to throw down with the best of the best at our annual tournament. The winner receives a gift basket filled with goodies donated by local businesses, a sweet championship belt, their name and company permanently engraved on the RPS trophy, and bragging rights for eternity.

Event Details
Artboards

Since 2008, the billboards above Mobank Crossroads location have been reserved exclusively to display the work of local artists. Through a partnership with the Charlotte Street Foundation, we've been able to feature multiple artists every year.

View the collection
Artist

At Mobank, we’re fortunate enough to call many local artists our customers. And we’re happy to share their work with a community that appreciates their creative spirit as much as we do. So every month, we invite a different local artist to set up their “studio” in the Crossroads bank lobby to do what they do best – create.

We think it’s great that anyone who comes in gets to witness (and sometimes take part in) the creation of an original piece of art. We love that. And it’s not even about selling the work, it’s about bringing a little inspiration and maybe some awe into our customers’ days while sharing the talents of others.

Our “Artist in Residence” doesn’t have to be a Mobank customer – it’s not about that. It’s about embracing and enjoying the artistic community we’re a part of.

To learn more, call Julie Nelson Meers at 816.881.8275.

Our Story

Mobank, is passionate about supporting Kansas City-based businesses and people. And, we encourage others to do the same. When you bank here, you’re part of a powerful network of thinkers, dreamers and doers.
