We invite you to a very special evening featuring the 2015 Artist INC Advance class - 14 of some of Kansas City's most talented and driven visual and performing artists who have spent the past 9 weeks developing art projects they are now ready to share with the community. 

On Wednesday, December 9, they will present their final projects and we will ask you to VOTE for the project you consider the most deserving of a $1,000 grant. This special event will include delicious food and drink provided by Howard's Grocery, Cafe, and Catering and the opportunity to spend time with each of the artists and learn even more about their projects. 

From a Cuban music exchange to a pop-up art space in a vintage 1960 Airstream trailer, the Artist INC Advance projects span disciplines and reflect the diversity of vision and ambition in the local creative community. 

The artists presenting include Debbie Barret Jones, Laura Isaac, Lisa Marie Evans, Annie Cherry Montgomery, Andi Meyer, Camry Ivory, Anson the Ornery, Michael McClintock, Kasey Rausch, Trilla Ray-Carter, Cydney Ross, Emily Evans Sloan, Casey Whittier, and the Minister of Information aka M.O.I. 

Artist Facilitators for Artist INC Advance include Beau Bledsoe, Chris Dahlquist, Jose Faus, Erin McGrane and David Wayne Reed.
