The Art in the Loop Foundation seeks artists for the 2021 Summer Public Art program (8th Annual).
Art in the Loop selects local artists to create temporary, site-specific work along and near the KC Streetcar route in Downtown Kansas City. Selected artists will receive funds and project support to bring their big ideas alive for a 5-month outdoor program.
2021 Theme/Prompt: Resilient
What does an inclusive, equitable, accessible, and vibrant Downtown Kansas City look like? What is needed in order for our city to remain resilient – particularly within this present moment?

Proposed projects should reflect these questions and ideas in ways that engage and stimulate Kansas City audiences through public art installations.
