The 2016 Art in the Loop Project: Connect was a curated outdoor exhibit of temporary artwork and performances located along the KC Streetcar route and other Downtown locations from July through October. It infused the center of Downtown Kansas City with innovative and engaging temporary art that refreshed, intrigued and surprised Downtown workers, residents, and visitors. The project also created opportunities for local emerging and established artists to extend their practice into the Downtown environment with curatorial, professional and logistical support.
The 2016 Art in the Loop Project: Connect was made possible through the generous support of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, the KC Streetcar Authority, the KCMO-Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund, the Missouri Arts Council, ArtsKC and the Richard J. Stern Foundation for the Arts, as well as many corporate sponsors.
Space for the screening and exhibit is provided by Dave Jennings, KC Skyline Realty.
