KCAI's Current Perspectives lecture series continues with Distinguished Alumnus Bill Brady. Brady graduated
from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1991 and went on to attend the
Skowhegan Residency Program in Skowhegan, Maine. Drawn to New York and its lively art scene, Brady attended graduate school at the School of Visual
Arts. He worked at the Guggenheim Museum of Art and at Chase Manhattan Bank, where he oversaw their growing collection of fine art. Shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, Brady opened his first gallery in a small storefront space in New York's East Village. To help finance the gallery, he installed an
operational ATM in the front window and called it The ATM Gallery. Now in
its third (and largest) location at 621 W. 27th St. in Chelsea, ATM Gallery
has become an important venue for introducing emerging contemporary artists.
