The Art in the Loop Foundation (AILF) is seeking visual artists to engage the community through an exhibition of public artwork along the KC Streetcar route in Downtown Kansas City from May 31 through October 31, 2021. This is our 8th annual summer public art program. Through a competitive, open-call process, AILF selects local artists to create temporary, site-specific work along and near the KC Streetcar route in Downtown Kansas City. Your artwork will be viewed by thousands of KC Streetcar riders and Downtowners daily! Selected artists will receive funds and project support to bring their artwork alive for a 5-month outdoor program.

The 2021 theme/prompt is “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? For the 2021 Art in the Loop Project, we are looking for artists to respond to these questions and to explore their vision of resiliency. Proposed projects should reflect these questions and ideas in ways that engage and stimulate Kansas City audiences through public art installations.

This year artists may submit proposals in four categories, KC Streetcar Wrap, ARTwall (13th & Grand), KC Streetcar Stop and KC Streetcar Stop/816 Day. Read the full call for artists at

The application requires a written description of your proposal and a short narrative about your goals for public engagement. Stipends will range from $500-$2,500 depending on the category. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, May 12, 11:59 CST. Applications must be made online via the application portal.
