Public Art

The Tim C. Crummett Family Charitable Fund was established in 1991 for beautification projects in North Kansas City.   The Tim C. Crummett Family Charitable Fund Projects Committee was established to identify projects that enhance North Kansas City’s quality of life and create a culturally rich community.  The Committee is currently working on two Public Art Projects:

Public Art Mural Pilot Program

The Committee has announced a Public Art Mural Pilot Program to commission a public art mural in North Kansas City.  Murals create a tangible sense of place, adding color, vibrancy, and character to urban environments.  Public art offers accessibility to art without the cost and barriers associated with museums and galleries. 

This pilot program will commission a new, original public art mural on a building with a project budget of up to $8,000.  This mural must be maintained on the building for at least five years.  The building owner/business will not receive compensation for the display of the mural, and is prohibited from charging for access to the mural.  The Public Art Mural Pilot Program will be conducted in a two-step process:

Step #1: Call for Walls     (Closed --- April 1-26, 2019)

Building owners can submit their wall for consideration in the Public Art Mural Pilot Program.  (Business tenants can submit a wall, but building owners MUST submit a letter of support with the application form.)

Step #2: Call for Artists     (Closed --- May 6-31, 2019)

The Tim C. Crummett Family Charitable Fund Projects Committee has selected the north wall of the Brewkery, 1443 Swift Street, for the next phase of the Public Art Mural Pilot Program.  The Committee is currently conducting a Call to Artists for a new, site-specific, original public art mural.  The project has an $8,000 budget with a $2,000 contingency budget. 

The building owner/business will be part of the artist jury process for the Call to Artists.  The mural submission cannot include advertising of any kind.  (Advertising includes company names, business logos, and/or symbols that are associated with the building owner or business.) 

Richards Park Public Art

The Committee is in the process of commissioning a unique and site-specific sculpture in Richards Park.  This will also be a long-term attraction to entice residents, visitors and celebrate the City's history and heritage.  The exhibition will be located in Richards Park, located near the heart of North Kansas City across the street from the North Kansas City YMCA.   The site is located across the street from Dagg Park, a very popular sprayground/playground, and is close to North Kansas City High School.
