2012 Generative Artist Award Winners on KCUR

 By Steve Walker for KCUR

"Since 2008, the Charlotte Street Foundation has recognized creative Kansas Citians who, within their various genres, consistently produce original and innovative work that often falls outside the mainstream. 

Selected for this year's Generative Performing Artist Awards are composer and musician Patrick Conway and theater artist Heidi Van.

Receiving an honor like the Charlotte Street Foundation's Generative Performing Artist Award can prompt honorees to think about their work – where it’s been and where it’s going. Conway and Van take the opportunity to describe themselves as artists lest anyone else do it for them."
