Throughout the Crossroads Arts District
Our goal is to continue to grow and propel KC's Crossroads into a mural-laden neighborhood that promotes creative expression and exploration on a large, public scale; an art-mecca of our own midwest design.
If you've ever taken a trip to Miami, you've more than likely seen Wynwood and its walls. You may also be more familiar with the Bushwick area in Brooklyn or the mural-covered city of Philadelphia. These street art mecca's are world-renown and draw hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. Kansas City has a rich history of art, especially painting, as well as an incredible focus on art for the public, for everyone. From world-class museums with free-admission, the countless galleries and pop-up spaces supporting artists with a thriving First Friday Art Walk, to decades of murals gracing buildings throughout our neighborhoods; we embrace it all.
Our goal is to continue to grow and propel KC's Crossroads into a mural-laden neighborhood that promotes creative expression and exploration; an art-mecca of our own midwest design. We are celebrating this truly incredible Arts District and furthering it's presence as an art-rich destination with a strong public art element through murals.
We select our muralist based on merits of creative individuality and technical prowess. We choose artists from varying backgrounds, geographical locations, and artistic styles in a manner that promotes and mimics the inclusiveness, as well as the strong, bold, and slightly untamed individuality of the Crossroads Arts community.
