PLUG will maintain a roster of artists working in all disciplines and our curatorial cohort will use this roster to consider work for group exhibitions, crit nights, portfolio reviews, studio visits, artist highlights, etc. We are eager to review submissions from artists with an active creative practice who are interested in exhibiting work and/or participating in programming. We are not looking for show proposals at this time. Through this open-call process, our goal is to expand our network of artists on a rolling basis.  

**Inclusion in the PLUG Artist Roster does not guarantee participation in any future PLUG exhibitions, events, or programming.**


PLUG is run by a curatorial cohort driven by the mission to exhibit engaging new work, initiate critical dialogue, and connect Kansas City artists with a national network of artist-run spaces.   PLUG provides access to exhibition space, collaborative possibilities, and engaging programming. Our goal is ​ Each member is a volunteer and occupies a position on PLUG's Board of Directors. Current members are Christina M Femiano, Megan Ganey, Isabella MatuteShelly Pinto, Stefan SchulzChelsea Smith, and Travis Smorstad.


From the Rocket Grants Projects 2011-2012

“Plug Projects” This project is a curatorial collaboration by five Kansas City artists (Nicole Mauser, Amy Kligman, Misha Kligman, Cory Imig & Caleb Taylor) who share the mission of bringing fresh perspectives and conversations to the local art community through a new, collective artist-run space. Their goal is to energize artists and the public at large by exhibiting challenging new work, initiating critical dialogue, and expanding connections of artists in Kansas City as part of a wider, national network of artists.​


From 2011-2020, Plug Projects occupied a storefront gallery space in Kansas City's historic West Bottoms district. There, Plug Projects exhibited works from national and local artists, facilitated programming such as Crit Nights, Spark Plugs, and unPLUGGED. ​Due to the Covid-19 crisis and its impact on both art spaces and individual members, Plug Projects left behind its West Bottoms gallery space and operated unattached from a physical location for a year. Plug Projects became PLUG, LLC, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. In 2021, PLUG became a tenant at the Agnes Arts Building, east of Kansas City's downtown area.
