The Crossroads Artboards were launched in Fall 2008 as a partnership between Charlotte Street and Missouri Bank (now BOK Financial), and is currently supported in part by the Crossroads Community Association. The Artboards are exterior, double-sided billboards located at 125 Southwest Boulevard featuring new, commissioned works by Kansas City-area artists approximately every three months.
Selected artists are chosen through a competitive process, and receive artist stipends of $1,000 each for completing and delivering print-ready images for one set of side-by-side billboards. Over 100 artists have been featured on the Artboards to date.
A call for proposals is issued each year in the fall.
