Second stop has gone in on 5th St in River Market. The stop is named 'City Market' and is the first to be "beautified."
First beautified streetcar stop debuts in River Market
"The first of three streetcar stops beautified as part of Kansas City’s 1 percent for the arts program has been installed in the River Market.
On Monday, a stop adorned with artwork from Celina Curry was installed near the corner of Walnut and Fifth streets in the River Market. Two more will appear soon in the district — near the corner of Third Street and Grand Boulevard and along Delaware Street.
The first stop’s semi-translucent canopy is decorated with multicolored cartoon pictures of Kansas Citians. Curry was not immediately available to provide further detail about the artwork on the “City Market” stop or the other stops. Curry is one of two recipients of a $100,000 grant to produce artwork beautifying the streetcar project. The other recipient, Actual Size Artworks of Stoughton, Wis., is working on a sculpture project that will be installed at Union Station."
