2022 Art in the Loop Project: Sustainable
This year marks the ninth year for the Art in the Loop Project and includes artwork based on photography, painting, digitized illustrations and paintings, and more. The Art in the Loop Project is a curated outdoor exhibition of temporary artworks performances presented in partnership with the KC Streetcar Authority. Artists responded to the 2022 theme of “Sustainable” and addressed questions about how one defines sustainability, what are the intersections between art and sustainability and what does a sustainable Downtown Kansas City look like?
The project also includes a performance series. Local will perform live music, performance art, and other site-specific work along and near the KC Streetcar route in Downtown Kansas City. This performance series will feature multi-sensory performances such as spoken word, dance, music, etc., while also highlighting the visual artworks installed along the KC Streetcar route. Some of the events may be progressive in nature and take place at multiple locations. Selected artists will perform at one of five Art in the Loop events: the kick-off ceremony, two guided art walks, a summer evening concert, and the closing reception. Artists will receive a small stipend for their work.
