Art in the Loop/Art on the Line
2016 Call for Concepts – Information Session

Tuesday, March 8, 11:30-1:00pm

Paragraph Gallery, 23rd E. 12th St. Kansas City, MO 64106

The Art in the Loop Foundation (AILF) is pleased to announce a Call for Concepts for our 2016 Art in the Loop Project: Connect. Artists from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.

AILF will host an information session to provide further information about this opportunity at Charlotte Street Foundation’s Paragraph Gallery on Tuesday, March 8, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Please RSVP to Ann Holliday, ann@downtownkc.org if you plan to attend.

This year, AILF will curate thoughtful and engaging performances and semi-permanent public artworks for Downtown Kansas City centered around the theme Connect. The project will expand its geographical and conceptual scope from Oppenstein Park, 12th & Walnut, and the Art Impact Zone to include the KC Streetcar line. AILF will partner with the Kansas City Streetcar Authority to showcase work at the streetcar stops and within the streetcar; thus, generating a call for concepts for Art in the Loop/Art on the Line. New visual and performance possibilities are abundant by way of this partnership, and AILF encourages artists to consider these new surfaces and spaces for artistic expression.

Art in the Loop is also collaborating with the City of Kansas City, Missouri to manage the Ilus Davis Art in the Park project which will include 4 temporary art installations and 4 community performances throughout the summer. For more information about the Ilus Davis Art in the Park artist selection process contact Elizabeth Bowman, KCMO public art administrator, elizabeth.bowman@kcmo.org.
