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
Shiny Jets is a collaborative art and music venture whose aim is to use found sound in conjunction with live instrumentation in an attempt to deconstruct common musical dialogues. The duo, drummer Tucker Slough (Kansas City) and singer/guitarist Shanté Clair (New York), formed in Chicago in 2004 and have collaborated and recorded their songs long distance (via dropbox) for over a decade. Recently, Clair relocated to Kansas City to fully devote their efforts to this long-term project. Since Shiny Jets’ inception, the group has been composing the music for a three-part multi-media visual and auditory art installation.
