2013 Call for Artists
ArtsKC Awards Commission
The Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City is seeking to commission a Kansas City artist to create 9 works of art to present to metro-area businesses in recognition of their leadership in the arts during the ArtsKC Awards Luncheon. The event is attended by over 500 leaders in the arts, business, and civic community.
Artwork may be 2- or 3-dimensional in nature and must be appropriate for the business setting. Because the awards will be exhibited together at the ArtsKC Awards Luncheon, the 9 works of art should be similar in nature (i.e., part of the same series), but not necessarily identical. All objects must be exhibition ready and easily transported by one person.
Eligibility and Selection
This opportunity is open to visual artists residing in and around the five-county Kansas City metropolitan area. Winning artists from previous years are ineligible to submit. Proposals will be reviewed by a panel comprised of business and arts professionals.
Commission: $7000 for 9 works of art
Event: ArtsKC Awards Luncheon & Campaign Kickoff
Friday, January 25, 2013
