Downtown KC Art Crawl Highlights Art in the Loop

The Art in the Loop Foundation held its first Downtown KC Art Crawl on Wednesday, September 13th. The tour was conceived as an opportunity to more deeply learn about the Art in the Park and Art on the Line artwork that is included the 2017 Art in the Loop Project: “Cue!” 
The crawl began at the Kansas City Artists Coalition, which co-sponsored the event.  At that time, the KCAC was showing the River Market Regional Exhibition: Trust, Truth, Transcend (July 14 – September 22)The crowd next headed to the River Market West streetcar stop, to hop on-board KC Streetcar. Participants enjoyed stops at most of the 2017 Art in the Loop installations, where some of the artists shared insights and project experiences personally.
The tour ended with a tour of the four 2017 Art in the Park installations and was followed by a reception in City Market Park.  The event was a resounding success!
