2017 Call for Concepts – Information Session
Friday, February 10, 12:00-1:00pm
Paragraph Gallery, 23rd E. 12th St. Kansas City, MO 64106

The Art in the Loop Foundation (AILF), in partnership with the City of Kansas City, Missouri (KCMO), KC Streetcar, and the Kansas City Public Library, is pleased to announce a Call for Concepts for our 2017 Art in the Loop Project: Cue! Artists from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.

AILF and KCMO will host an information session to provide further information about this opportunity at Charlotte Street Foundation’s Paragraph Gallery on Friday, February 10, from 12 to 1 p.m. Please RSVP to Ann Holliday, if you plan to attend.

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 also collaborating with the City of Kansas City, Missouri to manage the Art in City Market Park project which will include 4 temporary art installations and 6 community performances throughout the summer. For more information about the Art in the Park artist selection process contact Elizabeth Bowman, KCMO public art administrator, or visit

New for 2017 is the Art in the Loop & Art in the Park Music Series.  The series will take place on Wednesdays at lunchtime throughout the summer at City Market Park, on KC Streetcar, and at the Kansas City Public Library Central Library.

For more information about all of these opportunities, visit Applications are due February 17, 2017, at 11:59 AM. Artists and collaborative projects are encouraged to attend this information session and apply.
