Call for Artists

Powell Gardens, Kansas City’s botanical garden, seeks design proposals for a special outdoor exhibition that will inspire visitors to linger on our lawns, relax while relishing beautiful landscapes and botanical collections, and play in Kansas City’s “BIG back yard.” The year 2018 marks the 30th anniversary of Powell Gardens, and offers BIG celebrations all year long. Located just east of Kansas City on Highway 50, Powell Gardens wishes to create engaging, larger-than-life outdoor spaces for visitors that encourage play, inspire imagination, and promote relaxation with a dash of humor and whimsy.

Project Description

Call for Artists

Powell Gardens is currently accepting exhibition proposals from professional artists for the gallery spaces in the gardens’ Visitor Education Center. We are seeking a large body of an artists’ work that can be either displayed building-wide as a solo artist exhibition or curated into and displayed as a small group thematic exhibition. Submissions are welcome from any artist working in two-dimensions and in any media for works that can be installed on a wall and that are framed under glass (all works must be professionally displayed).
