Mission Statement The Studios Inc provides studio space, professional development, networking, and exhibitions for mid-career artists in Greater Kansas City.
Background Statement
Launched in 2003 to serve mid-career artists, Studios Inc is Kansas City’s only nonprofit arts organization offering pivotal three-year residencies to mid-career artists who are poised to significantly expand their careers in accordance with the career goals articulated in their residency application. Its competitive application process, sharp focus on career advancement, and commitment to serve the under-served population of mid-career artists set Studios Inc apart from other artist-support organizations. Studios Inc offers a unique immersion experience for resident artists, who use their studio and exhibition space to produce and exhibit work, network and learn from one another, and attract and cultivate relationships with art patrons, collectors, and arts professionals.
Operating within Studios Inc are seven programs:
  1. Artist Residency Program (described above)
  2. Public Exhibition Series which exhibits Resident Artist works five times annually free to the public
  3. Patron Program, which matches an underwriting patron to a Resident Artist that encourages conversation and shared learning between the patron and the artist
  4. Internship Program, which provides college students from a variety of disciplines a custom designed internship experience that is immersive, relevant, and robust
  5. Partnership Space Program, which offers work space to creative partners in exchange for rent (current partners are Torn Label Brewing and Cosmic Cowboy Productions
  6. which provides a sales gallery and art lending program to increase exposure for past and current resident artists 
  7. Resident Artist Extension Program, which allows one outgoing Resident Artist to, for a nominal fee, retain a studio space for one year following the end of his or her three-year residency.
Impact Statement
  • Studios Inc successfully implemented two new programs in 2016: 1) Partnership Space Program that is generating additional revenue of nearly $50,000 annually and 2) a street-visible space where works by current and former Resident Artists are displayed for sale. 
  • Studios Inc launched a brand new website that includes more two-way communication, outreach tools, blog posts, photos, news, and more. An integrated marketing firm was integral in designing and consulting on the site, with nearly 95% of the implementation costs being provided in-kind. 
  • Gender diversity among SI Resident Artists has been a focus of growth in 2017-18. Studios Inc adopted a diversity statement to increase its multicultural competency and in doing so added language for the Resident Artist selection panel committee  to establish a minimum level of gender diversity.
  • Studios Inc will maintain a strong and passionate board to engage a broader section of our local and national community; SI plans to grow its current Board of Directors from 12 members to 15 in 2018-19.
  • With help from a challenge grant, Studios Inc will make capital improvements to its facility which will include an ADA-approved entrance with changes to the public sidewalk that will include stair and ramp access and a widened front door to accommodate a wheelchair or other mobility assistive devices. 
Needs Statement
  • Additional funding for pending capital improvements: $30,000
  • A plan to establish an endowment fund and planned giving program
  • Additional funding to retain part-time office administrator, to hire part-time gallery coordinator.
  • Develop new business and nonprofit partnerships that elevate the arts in Kansas City
  • Additional foundation support to maintain a diversified income screen.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

As our programs continue to evolve, our goal of promoting and providing the tools and resources to the most promising mid-career artists in our area has been extremely successful. Our three-year studio program continues to have major impact, within our local community and on a national and international level, promoting Kansas City as a leader in the visual arts.

By building a new diverse board, increased foundation support and new recurring income streams (now accounts for 33% of our annual budget), along with hard work and creative planning we have seen a positive impact on our organization. We continue to be recognized by The Alliance of Artists Communities, a national and international association of artists’ communities and residencies, as one of the most impressive and successful residency programs in the world.
Our organization has much to be proud of, but challenges still lie ahead to ensure our long-term viability. In the past, the success of the organization has relied on a small group of passionately devoted founders and patrons. The donation of a major building asset brings the need to build an endowment for the long-term care of the facility, requiring a commitment to raising capital. Most importantly, we need to continue to find ways to promote our studio artists to ensure their long-term success, providing a positive return on the investment to our entire community.
We are proud of our past, optimistic about our future, and are committed to the hard work necessary to ensure our future success.
Aimed exclusively at mid-career artists, this three-year, free-of-cost program isn’t just about creating a body of work but also building portfolio with both connections intra-program and to the community. Our program is the best in the nation because we offer ample space, three year duration of residency and a patron program. As our residents build their physical body of work, we work to help them foster relationships with professionals in the creative community. To qualify:  
  • support program objectives by maintaining a strong studio presence, maximizing use of facilities, contributing to a collegial atmosphere, and participating in community activities.
  • strong desire to produce art as demonstrated by work ethic
  • Focus on next level of professional achievement.
  • Reside in Greater Kansas City
  • Must be a mid-career artist. Artist’s work has developed and maintained its presence for a number of years as evidenced by regional or national recognition through publication or public presentation. Our qualitative measure is where an artist has a body of work that has a fully developed language or style.

    Short-Term Success
    • Resident Artist's communal wood-shop expanded and updated with new equipment
    • Increase in number of diversified outside events that we hosted, for example the UMKC Student Film Fest, Fundraiser for Global Med, and events with the Kansas City Art Institute.
    • Launched and additional exhibition space that features past and present resident artwork, increasing exposure
    • Increased diversity of selection committee responsible for selecting artists for applicants
    Long-Term Success
    • The engagement of the resident artists with the community increases the general understanding and appreciation for the artistic process and in turn cultivates and strengthens arts awareness.
    • Through increased exposure of Studios Inc's residency program, the artist(s) has the leverage to take on more civic leadership positions within the community.
    Program Success Monitored By Studios Inc staff has open communication with Resident Artists before and during their residency, and conducts post-residency interviews as artists rotate out of the program. In addition, growing numbers of artists are applying each time a residency opens, which speaks to the program's strength and notoriety.
    Examples of Program Success
    "Studios Inc has offered the opportunity for me to work on multiple works simultaneously. This has had a profound effect on the nature of the work and the range of ideas and opportunities at any given moment. The past couple of years at Studios Inc have allowed me to be more ambitious in the scope of the work and certainly the scale of the various fabric-based constructions I have been able to assemble. Having an exhibition space in the facility has been invaluable."
    -Warren Rosser, Former Resident Artist
    The Patron Program matches patrons with artists to underwrite a year’s operating costs for their working studio space while in residence. For a $5,000 donation, patrons not only play an imperative role in Studios Inc, they also have the option to receive the gift of artwork from the artist to add to their private collection (the amount of the contribution that is tax deductible is limited to the difference between the amount of the contribution and the value of the art work received) or take the full tax deduction for their contribution. Furthermore, the Patron Program provides the opportunity for a heightened level of dialogue between patron and artist. Patrons are encouraged to cultivate relationships with the artists to learn more about the creative process.
    Category Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Artists-in-Residence
    Population Served Adults
    Program is linked to organization's mssion Yes
    Short-Term Success
    • Provides the opportunity for patrons to create a heightened level of dialogue and relationship-building with the artists in residency while broadening their knowledge and respect for the artistic process
    • Program is operating at optimal capacity with 11 patrons for 11 residency artists
    • Patrons will also invite friends, family, and business associates to events at The Studios Inc in order to foster wider community involvement.
    Long-Term Success
    • The resources provided by the patrons to the artists strengthens the sustainability of the artist's career and Studios Inc as an organization through networking and patron resources and involvement.
    • Generates the social capital necessary to enable the artists to leverage their career and artistic endeavors within Kansas City as well as on a national level
    • Resources provided by patrons enable artists in residency more visibility to attract curators and collectors from around the world.
    • Cultivates a new patron base, regularly drawing donations form donors previously not associated with the arts.
    Program Success Monitored By The Patron Program is monitored in two ways: feedback from Patrons, and feedback from Resident Artists. Great care is taken in matching Patrons to Resident Artists, and the positive feedback received attests to the success of that matching system. Another measurement is how often a Patron will invite others to visit the studio of his or her Resident Artist match.
    Examples of Program Success A growing number of Patrons report that the Studios Inc program is their first opportunity to develop a personal and direct relationship with an artist whose work they admire, enjoy, collect, and value. The relationship between a Resident Artist and his or her Patron is to be mutually beneficial, with the Patron becoming more engaged in an artist's work, and the artists becoming more engaged with their core audience. One mark of program success is when Patrons begin to bring friends and colleagues to a Resident Artist's studio to broaden the exposure for that artist, and studio visits from outside parties have increased steadily over the years through this channel.
    Description With committed staff, resident artists, patron involvement, and a compelling mission, Studios Inc offers opportunity for an immersive and skill building experience. The intern will interact with business and visual art community leaders who offer a valuable network for career development. Networking skills are built as well as building a network for the intern. Internships are custom-designed in respect to specific program needs and the skill set and goals of the participant. Through the process of interviews, identifying intern goals, and tracking performance measures, the programs results ensure the benefit of all parties involved. The intern’s abilities, interests, and availability will shape specific duties. This is a volunteer position—if it fulfills an academic requirement, Studios Inc will collaborate with the candidate and academic institution to create a fun, resume-building experience.

    Examples of Program Success
    "The exhibition internships at Studios Inc taught me how to present myself professionally in the Kansas City art scene. Prior to this experience, my interaction had been with mostly students and faculty. During my time at Studios Inc, I had the opportunity to meet some of Kansas City’s best artists, viewing their work and discussing their processes. I not only learned the technicalities of working in a gallery and artist residency program, but also the qualities necessary to be successful at whatever future artistic endeavor I choose. Under the direction of Colby K Smith, I learned the importance of first impressions, attention to detail, networking, and—above all—always taking full advantage of any opportunity and always rising to any challenge."
    -Molly Garrett, Former Intern from Kansas City Art Institute

    Public Exhibition Series kicks off in September and concludes in June in one of the largest non-museum art spaces in the region.

    Examples of Program Success
    "The Studios Inc is a welcome addition to the landscape of contemporary art practice. In the grand tradition of the non-profit studio and exhibition spaces of the 1960's and 1970's, it offers an alternative to artists in an art world increasingly dominated by a market mentality. It affords mid-career artists that most precious of gifts: the space and solitude necessary for the cultivation of serious art."
    -James Meyer, National Gallery of Art: Associate Curator of Modern Art
    Description The Partnership Space Program offers affordable work space for creative partners. Partners are vetted according to their overall alignment with Studios Inc’s goals and mission and are offered space on an annual contract in exchange for rent. Current partners include Torn Label Brewing and Cosmic Cowboy Studios. These partners bring diverse audiences into the Studios Inc facility on a regular basis for independent and/or shared events and activities. The Partnership Space Program has brought in a new audience of people who would not have otherwise been to Studios Inc. This enables us to continue to grow in not only our audience but also participants in our many programs.

    Examples of Program Success Torn Label Brewing hosts tasting events, often when Studios Inc has a visual art exhibition mounted in its public space that is adjacent to the Torn Label space. Patrons from the Torn Label event venture over into the Studios Inc space to check out the exhibition. This occurs continually. Likewise, Cosmic Cowboy often hosts live music or film events, during which visitors also experience the Studios Inc gallery and exhibition space. These are visitors that likely would not have experienced SI under other circumstances.
    Description is an exhibition space located in the Studios Inc facility, which hosts the collection of work that has been donated to Studios Inc by our residents. Each year artists involved in our Residency Program contribute one piece to the collection. Because of the growing body of diverse work from Kansas City’s most prominent artists, Studios Inc has created the program to engage not just local arts communities, but Kansas City as a whole. By having access to such a large, and varied collection of work, Studios Inc has been able to create an arts-centric program that offers educational opportunities for casual arts enthusiasts, and a one-stop shop for Kansas City’s greatest artists. The art education extends through the Art Lending Program which enables customers to lease artwork to display in offices, restaurants, event spaces, or other venues.

    • interest among outgoing Resident Artists to participate in program
    • interview/survey when resident artist completes' his or her two years
    Examples of Program Success This program's first participant, Jill Downen, saw the opportunity to continue her work in one of Studios Inc generous studio spaces as key in completing work for an exhibition at a regional museum. Her initial interest, and her positive comments to colleagues and peers, has been a great example of early success for this new program.
    CEO Comments SI has grown so much in breadth and depth in the past six years, it's nearly impossible to think back to when the organization was subsisting on revenue from two small programs and struggling to get by with little or no additional avenues for funding. With help from a major donor organization that provided a multi-year grant that allowed SI to establish and launch a plan for program and revenue growth, SI was able to re-invent itself while honing its flagship Resident Artist program. Now, the organization's challenges include sustaining the momentum it has with its new programs while establishing plans for long-term financial stability. SI is building relationships with key partners and funders in Kansas City, which is helping with current needs. Relationships with state- and national-based funders and partners will be the key to SI's long-term financial stability. Making these business and philanthropic connections are of utmost importance at the present time, as it takes time to build mutually beneficial relationships. As a board, it is our primary goal to provide guidance and make connections for SI that will benefit the organization long term.
