The Art of Data – How Kansas City, MO, Used Art to Bring a New Audience to City Hall

Art and data? Kansas City, MO, well known for citizen engagement, came up with a bold initiative this summer to showcase the work the city was doing and bring a new audience into City Hall. The ‘Art of Data’ event showcased ten artists who humanized city datasets into works of art. They took specific, dedicated datasets – such as life expectancy by zip code, and the city’s homicide rate – then translated them into tangible and provocative beauty.
