Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community

Of his work, Kilroy writes:
My writing feeds off the encounter. I am a flâneur, walking through my dreams, looking for chairs in alleys, interrogating storefronts. I am a radio receiving transmissions. I am a city writing books. My stories center around absurd juxtapositions, walking, gentrification, appropriation, power, artists, the American city at the turn of the 21st century.
