In order to give greater visibility to locally based creative talent, KCAW21 hosted an Open Call to artists to submit artworks to be installed in a variety of public spaces, responding to the KCAW21 Curatorial Theme: REIMAGINE.

We are delighted to confirm this year's artists are:  Amy Jackson, Anthony Garratt, Gold & Ashes, Lee Baker and Catherine Borowski, Lauren Baker, LR Vandy, Rand Abdul Jabbar, Yan Skates and  Zak Ové.
