Opportunity Equity

Charlotte Street values an equitable, diverse, and inclusive art community, which we interpret as all artists having fair access to the tools and resources they need to realize their artistic endeavors. We acknowledge structural inequities that have excluded individuals and communities from opportunity based on race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, class, age, and geography, and strive to counter those inequities in our work.  We encourage panelists and selection committees to actively consider and seek to recommend a diverse pool of applicants as finalists and recipients of these awards and all Charlotte Street programs.

Calls to Artists


Crossroads Artboards

Charlotte Street is seeking submissions from local artists who want their work considered for the 2024-2025 Crossroads Artboards. In partnership with the Crossroads Community Association, the Artboards is an ongoing public art initiative that showcases local contemporary art on an exterior, double-sided billboard at 125 Southwest Boulevard. From April 2024 through March 2025, new, commissioned images by Kansas City area artists will be presented and rotated approximately every three months.

Applications are due Monday, January 8, 2024. at 11:59 (CST)
