He enjoys thoughtful and honest public conversations about the causes and consequences of our current educational system.

Andrew Lyles – operated an artist run gallery, Spray Booth, in the Crossroads Art District of Kansas City, MO that was noted for bringing in 15 exhibitions that showcased over 300 Kansas City and visiting artists in a 2 year period. Lyles is an avid cyclist, adjunct drawing professor at Kansas City Art Institute, substitute teacher k-12, and recent projects include Lots of Love. Lyles is a graduate from KCAI 2010 Painting Department.

Taylor Pruitt – is a Graphic Designer/Art Director interested in community initiatives, identity systems and embracing the unexpected. A graduate of the 2012 graphic design program from KCAI. She is currently the Director of Programming on the Kansas City AIGA board focusing on organizing events for the local design community.

He is a 2010 graduate of the Interdisciplinary Arts program at the Kansas City Art Institute and a 2012 Rocket Grant recipient with support from the Charlotte St. Foundation, Spencer Museum of Art and the Andy Warhol Foundation.

Lauren Tweedie – is a storefront artist and a clothing designer. She is interested in the way design can create a relationship between a public space and a community.

Sean told The Pitch, “It is a diverse team, and for me that’s about bringing a variety of different people together to create something that’s bigger than themselves. To have a documentarian and a journalist is really important because of what we’re trying to explore for ourselves. ”

Starowitz told the Pitch: “There’s always been a rich history of artists running spaces in Kansas City, and I’ve always been interested in these storefront spaces as a format for artistic exploration. Gordon Matta-Clark is one of my biggest inspirations, and he did a project called Food in SoHo, and that’s one of the ideas we used to inform the Talk Shop. Also, in Chicago, there was a format called Mess Hall, and they were open for 10 years and run by 13 artists. It was an open format for a space, and that’s what the Talk Shop is really based off of.”

The Talk Shop will be open Sunday through Thursday, 6:00 pm. – 9:00 pm.

Artists onboard: Christina Kim, who created Dosa Inc., an eco-fashion line, among a ton of other things. She’s based in L.A. and has an international profile, and this will be her first project in the U.S. outside of L.A. She’ll do a community workshop that will be a large-scale installation in the neighborhood.

And we’re also working with Alex Elmestad, who I know from Bread for Work in St. Louis and my work with the Laundromat.

The Talk Shop, a temporary, experimental cultural center that will open in Midtown Kansas City for one year at an store front art space located at 3936 Main, next to Oddly Correct. It will be a vehicle for dialogue by hosting public events at which people will gather to discuss topics that matter in Kansas City, like education, transit or food issues.
