2019 Art in the Loop Project Wraps Up

Art in the Loop Artists

Art in the Loop Artists

The Art in the Loop Foundation would like to thank our 2019 artists, musicians, partners, funders, volunteers, organizers and audience for participating the “Make/Believe” project this past summer.

The mission of the Art in the Loop Foundation (AILF) is to contribute to the visual identity, enrichment, and revitalization of Downtown Kansas City, create new opportunities for artistic development, and expand public interaction with new art of excellence. This past summer, AILF continued its partnership with KC Streetcar, KCMO Parks Department, Downtown Council and KC Public Library to enrich Downtown KC through the Make/Believe Project. Local artists created works that invited the public to interact with the exuberance, vitality, whimsy, and magic that art can bring. Each artwork presented viewers with the opportunity to imagine, to make-believe, for a moment during each day.

Art in the Loop has fostered growth within the downtown community, enriching commuter routes and parks with public artwork. This work has a potent impact on the space it occupies and part of Art in the Loop’s mission is to encourage the community to engage with these spaces as much as possible. Our community engagement programs offer insight into artist practice and the story behind the work. 

We appreciate the on-going support of our sponsors and contributors as well funding from the Missouri Arts Council, ArtsKC and the Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund of the City of Kansas City, Missouri.
