Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art is pleased to host the 2019 Charlotte Street Visual Artist Awards exhibition, presenting recent work by three Kansas City–based artists: Boi Boy, Megan Pobywajlo, and Fatimah Tuggar. 97 local artists have received the Visual Artist Awards from Charlotte Street Foundation, with $721,500 in unrestricted cash grants being awarded directly to artists who are making exemplary contemporary work in the Kansas City metro area.
The opening reception for this annual exhibition takes place on Thursday, October 3, 2019 and is open from 6:00 - 8:00 PM. You can RSVP for the exhibition on Eventbrite.
A jury of arts professionals selected the artists to receive this prestigious award as a testament to their practice and achievements in the visual arts. Each artist has risen to the challenge of presenting a selection of new work and expanding individual presentation methods at Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.
