“The Studios Inc program brings an important component to Kansas City’s already vibrant art community. The program offers mid-career artists assistance in coming into their own through the paid residency program and the opportunity to create a new body of often larger scale, more ambitious works. The artists also are awarded the chance to exhibit their work to the public and this can serve as a real jumping-off point to further a serious career.”
