FX March Luncheon – A Voice for Artists and the Arts


A Voice for Artists and the Arts

With many creatives having roots in the arts, The Freelance Exchange of Kansas City is pleased to welcome Alice Thorson, editor of KC Studio magazine, as guest speaker for the March 31st luncheon. Alice will speak to the editorial and design strategies behind the city’s foremost arts publication, and how both drive audience development.

Alice was appointed editor of KC Studio in March 2015 following 23 years as an art critic at The Kansas City Star. She works to bring depth, focus and a heightened level of expertise to its editorial coverage of Kansas City’s cultural organizations and the talented artists they present.

Alice earned a master’s degree in art history at Northern Illinois University, and she continued her graduate studies at the University of Chicago. She has participated in the arts scene as an instructor, contributing writer and columnist at several institutions and publications.
