The Kansas City Design Center (KCDC) will host an open house on Thursday, May 12 from, 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The event will showcase KCDC’s Art in the Loop Vision Study, Downtown Recycling System Vision Study and Connecting the Dottes Study.  KCDC architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning students will be on hand to discuss their project.  Brief remarks will be made by the project leaders and sponsors at 6 p.m.

The Art in the Loop Foundation partnered with the Kansas City Design Center (KCDC) and the Downtown Council to develop a vision and master plan for working with artists to activate public spaces in Downtown Kansas City.  One of the goals of the project was to consider how public art (temporary or permanent) can play a role in making the Downtown Loop (Central Business District) more walkable, authentic, safe and connected.
