Big ideas need generous and critical support. Grand Arts offers this and more as a catalyst for artistic experimentation and production. We offer an environment for artists to pursue their ideas, to move their work forward and to make something extraordinary happen.
At Grand Arts, artists can rely on the support of our expert staff and fully equipped facilities. By providing the best possible conditions in which to work, Grand Arts has earned a reputation for being experimental, flexible, proficient and dynamic. Artists who are ready to explore, engage and produce will find a rigorous collaborative environment with resources tailored to meet the needs of each project.
Grand Arts is a non-profit art project space in downtown Kansas City. We commission and assist artists in the production and realization of ambitious contemporary art projects.
Our mission is to provide financial, technical and logistical support to artists while encouraging conceptual risk-taking and experimentation at all stages of the creative process. We function as a laboratory rather than a residency program. The public is invited to meet artists and observe them at work during the project and at culminating events and opening receptions.
