October 7, 2016 - November 26, 2016

Organized by COCA St. Louis and curated by Jacquelyn Lewis-Harris, Director of the Department of Human Origin and Cultural Diversity at the University of Missouri – St. Louis (UMSL), this exhibition is comprised of a selection of five large-scale murals made by professional and amateur artists, young and old, in the days and weeks following the 2014 protests in Ferguson and in South St. Louis. Made on plywood and found wood used to board up or protect area businesses, many of these paintings were salvaged by Carol Swartout Klein, author of the children’s book: Painting for Peace in Ferguson and the staff of COCA. Additional venues exhibiting murals include COCA’s Millstone Gallery, Gallery VISIO at UMSL, the Ferguson Youth Initiative and several others.

Presenting sponsor for all venues is Regions Bank.

This I Believe: Work by Whitfield School Art Students

October 7, 2016 - January 21, 2017

Whitfield School art students used this platform to explore and articulate their personal beliefs to create a group of thoughtful, self-reflective works of art in a variety of mediums, including photography, drawing, and ceramics.

The exhibition is made possible by Missy and Greg Hill.
