One Percent for Art Program

Kansas City International Airport participates in the City of Kansas City, Missouri’s “One Percent for Art” program, stipulating that one percent of public construction costs be set aside for public art enhancements. This program provides a catalyst for artistic growth and aesthetic excellence in the community while enhancing the vitality of Kansas City, enriching the lives of its citizens and visitors. All artworks were approved by the Municipal Art Commission.
