The 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.
Art in the Loop will offer 3 different opportunities for artists:
- Art in the Park: City Market Park (Municipal Art Commission, City of Kansas City, Missouri)
- Art on the Line and at the Library (KC Streetcar and Kansas City Public Library Central Library)
- Art in the Loop Music Series
ALL APPLICATIONS ARE DUE: FEBRUARY 17, 2017 by 11:59 a.m. CST
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?
