Charlotte Street Foundation’s Urban Culture Project is pleased to present Cumulus, a multi-media, multidisciplinary exhibition featuring select projects developed by current Urban Culture Project Studio Residents. UCP’s Studio Residency Program for Visual and Performing Artists awards free studios for one-year terms to promising and accomplished Kansas City area artists of all disciplines in need of dedicated space in which to work among a community of artist peers. UCP’s Studio Residency Program currently provides studios for more than 30 artists and groups, who occupy studios in three facilities: Bonfils (125 East 12th Street), pARTnership Place (906 Grand, 13th floor) and City Center Square (1100 Main Street, 5th floor).

The exhibition’s call for proposals encouraged studio residents to “consider collaboration or interactivity in the making and /or presentation of the work.” The open nature of the call resulted in a dynamic group of proposals whose structures are inherently generous – offering room for audience participation, inviting the response of peers, and directly giving “gifts” to visitors of the exhibition. As a cumulus cloud gathers mass between opposing wind currents, Cumulus seeks to harvest exchange, hybrid design, and spontaneous expression through a mounting creative momentum.

Cumulus has been organized by a collaborative curatorial team comprised of UCP Curatorial Committee members Cara Megan Lewis, Julia Cole, Kate Hackman, and Jared Panick.
