a charlotte street 15 year anniversary project considering the history and future of artist-driven pioneering in Kansas City and the changing nature of the city's "frontiers"

Frontier: Momentum and Trajectory

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A frontier is a feature of a community’s potential. It is a boundary, a limit and a challenge. My project, Frontier: Momentum and Trajectory, including a video slideshow at Paragraph and a connected series of posts to this site, represents the relationship between an individual artist’s work and a community’s support of that work.

There is an exchange between the individual and their community. In Kansas City, through the Urban Culture Project’s Residency program, this exchange has amplified an arts culture that favors ambition, growth, and potential. The featured artists and their work demonstrate the Kansas City arts community’s commitment to the personal trajectory of an artist’s work and its affect on the momentum of that community. Artists in Kansas City continue to expand our boundaries, test our limits and reveal that our frontiers are a point of contact between who we want to be and who we can be.

– Jonah Criswell, curator
