Call for Artists: Nelson-Atkins Museum Mini-Golf Course

Kevin PowellArts & Culture, City


The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (the “Museum”) will debut a 9-hole artist-designed creative mini-golf course inspired by the museum’s collection for the summer of 2018 on the lawn of the Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park. The objective of this course is to present a playful, one-of-a-kind interactive experience that highlights the museum’s collection in new and unexpected ways. The Nelson-Atkins is seeking design proposals for each of the nine mini-golf course holes that will be included in the course. Ten designs will be selected; the tenth hole will be deployed to off-site locations for marketing and promotional purposes.

Deadline for submission:

November 30th, 2017 / Course opens late Spring 2018


Entrants may include artists, designers, architects, engineers, landscape architects, furniture designers, makers, or individuals in any other related fields based anywhere in the United States. Individuals or teams may submit more than one entry, but each design proposal requires a separate submission. Collaborations are encouraged but not required. The Museum will fabricate the selected designs.


Designs submitted for consideration must relate to the Museum’s art collection and/or architecture. Submissions are encouraged to be creative and incorporate the theme in any manner appropriate for their proposal.
