CURRENT PERSPECTIVES: 2018 CHARLOTTE STREET FOUNDATION VISUAL ARTIST AWARDS DISCUSSION
November 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Please join us for a conversation between 2018 Charlotte Street Foundation Visual Artist Award recipients Marie Bannerot McInerney, Jarrett Mellenbruch and Jillian Youngbird. Curator Jennifer Baker will guide a discussion inspired by themes within the exhibition and informed by each artists’ processes and strategies of inquiry and research.
Since 1997, Charlotte Street’s Visual Artist Award has supported outstanding visual artists living in Kansas City through annual, unrestricted cash awards distributed directly to visual artists. These competitive awards recognize local artists who are creating outstanding artwork and show great accomplishment and promise by providing financial support, critical attention, and increased exposure with the aim of fostering their continued artistic and professional development. For the seventh time in the award’s 20-year history, the H&R Block Artspace at the Kansas City Art Institute will proudly present the 2018 Charlotte Street Foundation Visual Artist Awards Exhibition featuring new work by the 2018 Fellows: KCAI Faculty Marie Bannerot McInerney and Jarrett Mellenbruch, and Alumna Jillian Youngbird.
