Charlotte Street Celebrates 20th Anniversary!
Charlotte Street commemorates 20 years of supporting artists and CSF Award Fellows

Charlotte Street Foundation is proud to announce its twentieth year as Kansas City’s primary arts catalyst and provocateur. Since 1997, Charlotte Street has been an arts leader in Kansas City, identifying, challenging, and supporting emerging and mid-career artists. Charlotte Street will celebrate this milestone year with the launch of a redesigned brand and website later this month; pilot residencies; special events; and pop-up birthday parties that culminate with a Signature Fundraising Event in Fall, 2017.

In addition, Charlotte Street is commemorating its 20th anniversary with the city-wide program, Every Street is Charlotte Street (ESICS)—an interdisciplinary program that features 20 years of Charlotte Street Award Fellows through exhibitions, events, and performances at notable partner institutions across the city.

Over 20 partners in total across the Kansas City area join with Charlotte Street in the celebration. “This year is an opportunity to celebrate the catalytic impact Charlotte Street has had on the KC art community, as well as, celebrate the artists and community partners that make this all work. We’re proud of our past and looking forward to a future that will continue to challenge, invigorate, and energize the arts ecology of Kansas City,” said Amy Kligman.

This weekend, The Kansas City Public Library Central Library and The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art kick off Every Street is Charlotte Street programming.

Please see the Press Release for more information about upcoming Every Street is Charlotte Street Programming.
