Party Car by Amy Kligman, 2018 Art in the Loop Project

The Art in the Loop Foundation is excited to present the 2019 Art in the Loop Project: Make/Believe!  Again this year, we are partnering with the Downtown Council, KC Streetcar, the City of Kansas City, Missouri and KC Public Library to produce the 2019 Art in the Loop Project: Make/Believe, an annual curated outdoor exhibit of artworks and performances along the KC Streetcar route, in Washington Square Park and at the KC Public Library, May – September 2019. Our goal is to create unique and entertaining, cultural and artistic experiences for Downtown employees, residents and visitors – while also giving local artists the opportunity to build new audiences.  Our complementary Art in the Loop Music Series will showcase local musicians with performances onboard KC Streetcar, in Washington Square Park and at the Kansas City Public Library.

Sponsorship Opportunities

New sponsor benefits are available this year including recognition as the Art Car Sponsor, the Streetcar Stop Sponsor, and the Title Card Sponsor, which includes recognition at each artwork. All levels include recognition in Art in the Loop/Downtown Council social media posts. Click here for more information about sponsor levels.

Last year we showcased the work of 33 local artist groups, including over 76 individual artists and produced a weekly lunchtime concert series that stretched out over 16 weeks with a total estimated attendance of 6,400. We estimate nearly 350,000 people had the opportunity to view our artwork installed along KC Streetcar route. Wouldn’t you like to associate your brand with our creative community along the KC Streetcar route and in Washington Square Park?

We need your help to make this project a success! Over half of the funds raised will go directly to local artists who are working and building their arts businesses in our region. This project also supports efforts to attract talented and creative people to live and work Downtown by providing unique cultural and entertainment opportunities.
