Art on the Line

Spring has sprung along the KC Streetcar line with five new art installs.

In celebration of Black History and Women’s History months, the KC Streetcar Authority issued a Call to Artists to create art works to be installed at streetcar stops that answer the following questions:

• What does Black History Month mean to you?
• What does Women’s History Month mean to you?
• What does Black Women’s History Month mean to you?

The complete Call for Art can be found here.
