Charlotte Street Fellows • 2023, honors the outstanding achievements of 2023 Visual Artist Award Fellows Ruben Castillo, Sean Nash and Sun Young Park. Annually, Charlotte Street honors three exceptional Kansas City-based visual artists with unrestricted cash awards and a professionally curated exhibition at esteemed local non-profit art institutions. This year’s Awards and exhibition received major underwriting from the Jedel Family Foundation.

Since 1997, Charlotte Street has acknowledged outstanding artistic accomplishment and promise while providing Kansas City artists with essential, career-advancing financial support and critical attention. 106 visual artists and 29 performing artists in the Kansas City region have received this highly regarded award.

The 2023 recipients were selected by a panel of local and national curators, including Tempestt Hazel, Co-Director/Co-Founder of Sixty Inches From Center in Chicago, Raphael Fonseca, Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art at the Denver Art Museum, and JoAnne Northrup, Executive Director and Chief Curator of Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art.

Ruben Castillo’s work investigates themes of intimacy, queerness, place and the body using a range of media including print, drawing, sculpture/installation and video. His most recent imagery draws from a personal archive of photographs and materials, seeing the ordinary as a site for transformative potential and feeling.

Sean Nash is a multidisciplinary visual artist whose embodied research with food, fermentation and farming informs his artistic practice. Sean’s vibrant paintings and sculptures involve sensory curiosity, pleasure and evolving dynamics with the more-than- human world.

Sun Young Park explores the space between imagination and reality. The use of diverse materials represents her visual language as she explores contrasting surfaces, emphasizing ceramics and mixed media.
