KC Streetcar Call for Artists in Recognition of Black History, Women’s History, and Black Women’s History Month

2021 ARTwall: Together We Rise by Sheron Smith

The Kansas City Streetcar Authority is seeking visual artists to engage the community through an exhibition of public artwork along the KC Streetcar route in Downtown Kansas City. In recognition and celebration of Black History, Women’s History, and Black Women’s History months.

The artwork should respond to one or all of these questions:

  • What does Black History Month mean to you?
  • What does Women’s History Month mean to you?
  • What does Black Women’s History Month mean to you?

Through a competitive, open-call process, the KC Streetcar Authority will select local artists to create temporary, two-dimensional artwork to be displayed on 3-5 streetcar station stops. This artwork will be viewed by thousands of KC Streetcar riders and downtowners daily. Selected artists will receive an artist stipend of $500, plus project support to bring the artwork to the streetcar route for this outdoor program.

The deadline to apply is January 31 with the goal to have artwork up by the end of February, early March.  Follow this to learn more and apply: https://kcstreetcar.org/call-for-art-2022/

Additionally, stay tuned for the 2022 Art in the Loop Project Call for Art which will open later next month!
