Brief Description

The City of Kansas City, Missouri One Percent for Art program seeks to commission a professional visual artist, or artist team, to create two installations to be placed in the stairwells at the new KCI Airport parking garage. The public art at KCI should reflect our City’s diverse demographics and should welcome travelers of all backgrounds to experience art in an inclusive environment.

Art can be suspended from the roof structure and / or supported from the ground and is permitted to extend the full height of the stair shaft. Visitors will be able to touch or interact with this installation. This piece is meant to illuminate and enliven the vertical circulation during the day and night. The artist may interpret these installations as a pair (diptych) or as duplicate pieces.
