Call for Artists to Create Community Art Project About PAD

We’re excited to announce that we are partnering with the Mattie Rhodes Center to plan a collaborative community art project to promote understanding and awareness of peripheral artery disease (PAD) in the historic northeast neighborhoods of Kansas City, Mo. The first step is to find a passionate artist to work with on this health-focused collaboration with the community.

If you or someone you know is an artist, please share this Call for Artists information with them and encourage them to apply.

Call for Artists

This is an open call for Kansas City area artists who work in all media. The team is looking for artists who are interested in working collaboratively to create a meaningful and interactive multi-faceted art installation in the historic northeast neighborhoods of Kansas City, Mo.

This call extends to artists who are interested in working on a health-focused project with community members. There will be several events where community members will be invited to contribute to the art project, and the final product will require a team effort. The intent is for this collaborative art project to increase awareness about PAD and its risk factors, as well as shed light on ways to prevent PAD.
