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
Mo Dickens, writer-in-residence, has been the Gallery Assistant / Raconteur at the Belger Arts Center since 2004. In addition to writing press releases, and organizing exhibitions and loans, Mo has given personal tours of the Belger Collection to more than 50,000 visitors, including representatives of the Phillips Collection (Washington, DC), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NYC), the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and other cultural institutions. When he’s not working, Mo enjoys shaking hands with and/or hugging the vast contingent of talented artists, gallerists, and curators in the Paris of the Plains. In 2010 The Pitch newspaper named him Kansas City’s “Best Humble Servant of the Arts.” Mo appreciated that the honor precluded him from bragging about it.
