Kansas City Street Artists sign now

Public performances and art on sidewalks, plazas and parks are an important cultural asset to Kansas City and the community, and most importantly are an historic expression of constitutional First Amendment Rights.

The Kansas City Council is considering a new ordinance with discriminatory and unreasonable new restrictions on street artists. This unconstitutional proposed new ordinance will:

Greatly limit locations and hours of expression including evenings after 5 PM and weekends
Totally eliminate the publics right to financially support First Amendment expresion
Ban most, even modest amplification

We, the undersigned, support the tradition of diverse artistic expression in public spaces. We petition the Kansas City Council to reject this unconstitutional proposed ordinance.

    I, along with several of my friends, regularly entertain on the streets, and are looking to make a living at it soon. If this ordinance passes I will be moving with my friend, Jason Smith.

    I visit Kansas City approximately once each year and thoroughly enjoy the various types of street art. It would be a shame to take that away. It's one of those things that makes Kansas City unique - like New York.

    Street art is something I look for when visting other cities. Art should be accessible to the public and involve the public. There is no venue more accessible and involving of the public than publicly maintained streets.

    Street performances can be an attraction and are not a detraction to the city.
