The Art on Loan program provides local artists the opportunity to display their work to the residents of Leawood on a temporary basis. The first of these pieces was installed for one year in the lobby of City Hall beginning in summer of 2004. Each year thereafter a sculpture or two has been installed in the lobby and around Leawood public spaces. Please click here to see current Art on Loan.

The Arts in Public Places Initiative Committee shall attempt to borrow high quality, interesting art to be placed on loan in appropriate places throughout City. An Honorarium will be awarded to participating artists, with the stipulation that this money will be applied to the purchase price, should the City decide to purchase the artwork. Any On-Loan Art, which APPI contemplates purchasing, will go through the Selection Committee and City Approval process like any other piece of art.
