Eight artists have been selected to participate in Charlotte Street’s 2022-2023 Crossroads Artboards program. Located in the heart of Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District at 125 Southwest Blvd, Kansas City, MO, the Artboards will feature eight different works for three months each on the exterior, double-sided billboards. The artists selected for the 2022-2023 cycle are Derrick Bennitz, Austin Dearth, Angie Jennings, John Kline, Cesar Lopez, Christopher Spaw, Fred Trease, and Johanna Winters.

The 2022-2023 Artboards schedule is as follows (subject to change):

The jury for the Artboards consists of four professional artists in a variety of media, curators, educators, critical art writers, and cultural activists – all from the Kansas City region with at least one juror who lives or works in the Crossroads Arts District. The jurors for the 2022-2023 cycle were Rie Egawa, Sherry Leedy, Andrew Ordonez, and Caleb Taylor.


The Crossroads Artboards were launched in fall 2008 as a partnership between Charlotte Street Foundation and Missouri Bank (now BOK Financial).
