Kansas City Announces $100K For Art At Streetcar Stops
The city of Kansas City, Mo., will commission $100,000 of public art for the first phase of the streetcar line, and has announced a request for proposals.
In a release Friday, the city said it is looking for professional artists or artist-led teams to create proposals for art projects to be displayed at selected streetcar stops. The release says while all proposals will be considered, the city is looking for ideas that integrate the artwork into the infrastructure of the stops.
The estimated budget for the work is $100,000, to be divided among the selected stops. There are 16 planned stops along the first route, which will run from Crown Center to the River Market area, through downtown Kansas City.
Proposals are open to professional artists living in the United States. Submissions are due by 4 p.m. Jan. 27. Full details are available here.
