The Studios Inc.

The Studios, Inc. are similar to Red Dirt Studios, but in Kansas City.  There is a charge for artist space and the goal is to provide artists with a space for bigger works and a full network of makers and buyers.  Two interesting things that separate it from Red Dirt is that they focus on mid-career artists instead of blossoming/new ones and they have a funding model called patron partners where an individual can support a single artist by making a donation in the amount of their entire year’s studio rental (which from what I can tell starts at $5,000).
