Art in the Loop: Silly Walkways

 

During the summer of 2017 Byrd Productions joined with Art in the Loop and transformed Downtown Kansas City sidewalks and crosswalks with a LOT of silliness. There were several signs around the Downtown Library from the Streetcar shelter to the parking garage

Silly Walkways is invitation to allow for a moment of levity. Levity as in humor or frivolity. Everyone was invited to put their silliest foot forward and follow the signs. Once in a while there was a clown to inspire even more outrageous silly walks, and occasionally a camera man.

Silly Walkways was directly inspired by the Monty Python and the Flying Circus skit “The Ministry of Silly Walks” if you’re not familiar, please invite some levity and enjoy the video to the right in addition to checking out our videos.

Check Out this video from the Kansas City Star

Special Thanks to David Berry – our Silly Filming Camera Guy as we shared a moment of fun and laughter.
