Fiscal Sponsorship
This unique program offers individual artists, collectives, and emerging organizations the ability to solicit tax­ deductible contributions and grants, as well as consultation from MAPS staff for individual projects. Once a year, MAPS accepts applications for fiscally sponsored projects and an independent, three-person committee selects awardees. All project funds raised by fiscally sponsored projects are subject to a 6% administrative fee.

Review Committee

Kat Reynolds is in her feelings, and will probably remain sitting there. At the moment she is based out of Saint Louis, MO creating conceptual portrait and architectural photography. From receiving her B.A in Dance from Webster University, movement comes second nature and is thoroughly integrated into her practice. Her recent work is made to be literal, authentic, and emotional.

Kat has exhibited work within many spaces and institutions around Saint Louis, including the Pulitzer Arts Foundation, Fort Gondo Compound for the Arts, and Reese Gallery. Internationally she was hired to work for ImPulsTanz, the largest contemporary dance festival in Europe, as the event photographer where she worked on photographic and performance projects within the MUMOK, the Weltmuseum, and many other unique venues around Vienna, Austria.

Last year she completed her first residency in Berlin, Germany where she exhibited her work twice at Takt Kunsterprojectum; bringing together her two loves, architectural photography and authentic movement from the subject being photographed. This year she will be exhibiting in group and solo shows in Saint Louis, speaking at The Contemporary Art Museum of Saint Louis and The Saint Louis Art Museum, and receiving The Saint Louis Visionary Award for Emerging Artist of 2017. She will also be working on expanding her practice into more sculptural and performance works.
