Brief Description

The City of Kansas City, Missouri is seeking artists or artist collaborations to work collaboratively within the design process to develop innovative, original Art for the Maplewoods Parkway Project located along North Woodland between NE 96th Street and Shoal Creek Parkway. Total four roundabouts are being proposed along North Woodland Ave at the following intersections: NE 96th Street and N Woodland Ave, New Mark Drive and N Woodland Ave, NE 106th Street and N Woodland, and Shoal Creek Parkway and N Woodland, respectively. Thousands of people drive along Maplewoods Parkway every day. As the parkway develops a variety of maples will transform the road into an Avenue of Maples. We are looking for artists to offer ideas of how their work can complement and enhance the area’s arboreal beauty on one or all four of the roundabouts on the Parkway.
