CALL FOR ARTISTS: Midtown KC Now Storefront Windows

Applications are open NOW through May 15, 2021 for consideration as a selected artist for the Midtown KC Now windows located at 3931 Main Street. Selected artists would be asked to create artwork for two windows measuring 44” x 106” each. Selected artists must present a proposal for approval and are required to execute this project during mutual agreed upon hours on site at Midtown KC Now. Artists must submit proposals with the understanding that any materials used to execute the artistic vision must be easily removable from the windows upon the conclusion of the exhibition and the Midtown KC Now window space is returned to the way that the artists found it. The artists will be responsible for installation and un-install.

Midtown KC Now will exhibit the artworks for approximately 6 months and will select 6 artists to be scheduled to exhibit from June 2021 – June 2023.

BUDGET: $500 for artwork and installation plus expenses for supplies up to $200.

Artists must apply to KC Artists Coalition HERE.


Join us for food and music on Thursday, May 20
for our annual Party in the Parking Lot!

We will be celebrating the hard work of our Main Street and Broadway Area Community Improvement District staff, who make Midtown cleaner, safer, and inviting to all. We will also be announcing the Main Event Award Winners.

Luncheon will be held at 11:30 am in the parking lot east side of our building off Walnut Street, between 39th and 40th Streets.

Tables and chairs will be spaced for easier social distancing and we will have a hand washing station on-site. Masks are requested when not eating.

Event is FREE but registration is required via eventbrite or email.

2021 KC Millennial Neighborhood and Housing Survey

Every other year a KC-based firm, Highline Partners, conducts a survey to understand the neighborhood and housing preferences of people born between 1980 and 2000. The results of the survey are shared with civic and business leaders to help them make informed decisions about the future of KC. 
To make sure the survey is accurate and represents the opinions of our metro area, Highline Partners has asked us to share this with you. It will take about 7 minutes and no personal data will be shared.
As proponents of Midtown, we would love it if you can share your opinions so that the Midtown voice is heard.
To make it easy, you can scan the code below to get started.

Check your neighborhood's site for their meetings & events!
