Art in the Loop Foundation (AILF) is seeking artists to engage the Downtown Kansas City community through a series of art installations and performances in the center of Downtown Kansas City from May 1 through September 30, 2017.

ARTwall: Cue! by Larry Thomas, 2016

The theme for our 2017 project is “Cue!” – meaning a signal or prompt to act. Taking inspiration from the current ARTwall installation Cue!” by Larry Thomas which imagines 8 diversely patterned human figures queuing up on a billboard-style artwork adjacent to the Power & Light District, we are looking to artists to cue new interpretations of our City.

Artists cue viewers into reimagining and understanding our everyday experience. As Downtown Kansas City undergoes a vibrant transformation, we invite artists to cue new interpretations of this urban landscape: how can we experience Downtown in fresh ways through visual, physical, and performative cues?

Art in the Loop is partnering with the City of Kansas City, Missouri, theKC Streetcar Authority and the Kansas City Public Library to offer 3 different opportunities for artists:

  1. Art in the Park: City Market Park (Municipal Art Commission, City of Kansas City, Missouri)
  2. Art on the Line and at the Library (Kansas City Public Library Central Library and KC Streetcar)
  3. Art in the Loop Music Series

ALL APPLICATIONS ARE DUE: FEBRUARY 17, 2017 by 11:59 a.m. CST
