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. Over the past 18 years we have produced and exhibited more than 75 projects by artists including Isaac Julien, Sanford Biggers, Rosemarie Fiore, Laurel Nakadate, William Pope.L, Emily Roysdon and Sissel Tolaas.
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.
