David H. Hughes, Jr.
Following a successful marketing career in Kansas City, arts advocate, David Hughes followed his passion for the arts and founded Charlotte Street Foundation in 1997 to serve the needs of artists in Kansas City. Hughes recognized the need in Kansas City for an organization to support and advocate for local artists. His interests and commitment to Kansas City’s nonprofit sector has been long-standing through board service for several visual art, theatre and dance organizations, as well as, the Kansas City Art Institute. Since stepping down from Charlotte Street, Hughes has enjoyed more time with friends, traveling, and of course, more time for artists and the arts.
Art gets interesting when people who don’t normally share thoughts and space get together.
