Cheers to Twenty Years!
Charlotte Street Foundation is proud to announce its twentieth year as Kansas City’s primary arts catalyst and provocateur.

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.
