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
Carie Musick is a fine artist and fashion designer who received a BFA in Fibers from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2013. Carie revives the traditional domestic arts of needlepoint, sewing, and crochet, to explore contemporary feminine sexuality, relationships, and religion. Her work has been featured in publications and galleries throughout the US. She currently lives in Kansas City where she is an Artist in Residence at the Charlotte Street Foundation.
Musick writes: “I create work that speaks to what is real and what is not, and what is important individually and in the world at large. Through the use of video, sculpture, and made and found objects, I create environments that invoke a certain suspension of belief, commenting on religion, sex, transcendence, feminism and self-realization of the new [to me] world.”
