Dylan Mortimer and Davin Watne Uplifted Arms

After winning a commission to create artwork inside the downtown loop, Kansas City Art Institute graduates Dylan Mortimer and Davin Watne combined their talents to create an installation for everyone. Using photographs of people who ride buses around town, Mortimer and Watne created sandblasted aluminum silhouettes of 16 standing riders, their arms raised as if holding onto an overhead bar -- elevating the profile of this under-recognized population of the city to new heights in true populist fashion and scattering an amusing sense of purpose over the Area Transportation Authority's plaza at 10th Street and Main. Mortimer and Watne's collaboration, the first of several scheduled downtown installations by selected artists, is a prime example that art should be enjoyed at street level, by everyone.
