Kansas City International Artists Residency At The Artists Coalition

General information

Brief description of organisation

The Kansas City International Artists Residency at the Artists Coalition works to bring visual artists from around the world together in order to build friendships and improve intercultural understanding. The Kansas City Artists Coalition strives to support amateur artists and art professionals by offering space and time to create. The goals are: to provide artists with a supportive environment, time, and a large studio space to create art that others in the Kansas City community will be able to view and/or learn from; to enrich the resident artists’ experiences by encouraging travel and the importance of intercultural connections; to promote the value of exchanging ideas among art-producing peers.

Brief description of residency program

The Kansas City Artists Coalition has supported and inspired Midwestern contemporary visual artists for over 40 years. With galleries, art exhibitions, and teaching workshops for local artists, the KCAC has continuously elevated the status of professional artists and motivated amateur artists in the metropolitan Kansas City area. Located in the heart of Kansas City’s historic and attractive River Market district, the Kansas City Artists Coalition is centrally placed to influence and be influenced by people and events from the entire Midwest region. The old brick factory buildings, the vast Missouri River, and the unique boutiques and restaurants downtown all add to the charm of this ever-growing city.
