CHARLOTTE STREET FOUNDATION STUDIO RESIDENCY PROGRAM

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

Lucas Wetzel

For the past decade, Lucas Wetzel has worked as a writer, editor and language instructor in the United States and Germany. His articles and essays have appeared in the Lawrence Journal-World, The Kansas City Star, The Pitch and KCUR.org, and his poetry and fiction have appeared in The Civilian, The Artist Catalogue and Suggested Volume. In 2012, he and his wife, Jennifer, founded Kawsmouth.com, a literary website featuring contributions from over 60 writers, photographers and artists in the Midwest. In his first year as a Charlotte Street studio resident, Lucas participated in gallery shows and workshops, published interviews with area artists and curators, and helped organize publications and readings. He has one daughter and one son.
“For me, the primary goal of this residency is to meet people and make new things. Other ambitions for 2015-2016: To communicate and entertain. To get organized. To learn how to swim long distances. To outpace commercial speech and play with language for its own sake. To write lines at night that make sense the next day. To learn about and help promote the work of others. To grow into the tall tales I’ve been telling for years.”
