Sturges Word was pleased to participate in the 2011 Art/Work program coordinated by the Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City. Three of our staff submitted literary and design entries, and Linda Word, creative director and principal, was awarded Best in Show for her entry “Lake Supper” in the “8-Word Story” literary category.
“Sturges Word is a strong advocate for the Arts Council,” says Linda Word, Sturges Word creative director and principal. “We support their mission and enjoyed being a part of the Art/Work program. It was inspiring to see the work of so many creative Kansas Citians from so many different companies.”
Art/Work is a city-wide corporate arts challenge that encourages people in the Kansas City work force to share their personal creative talents in the literary, visual and performing arts. A panel of local professionals evaluates the entries and awards “Best in Show” honors at an awards program. The general public is also invited to vote for “People’s Choice” award winners.
Art/Work is one of many programs that the Arts Council provides that enables Kansas City area companies to actively engage in the arts. The council also offers a variety of programs and services that support area artists and arts organizations.
