Cherokee folks: Be a part of this remarkable Cherokee street-wide initiative!


An exhibit and Cherokee Street-wide event
Saturday April 26, 2014, 3-8 PM
at beverly & along Cherokee Street

Join us in celebrating cancer survivorship in this display of portraits of young St. Louis women under 45 who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Created in tandem with artist JR’s global initiative INSIDE OUT, this project has two components: an exhibition of the original small-scale color photographs at beverly, and a street-wide presentation of the large-scale black-and-white portraits in storefront windows and facades along the length of Cherokee Street.

This project was conceived of and made possible by Kim Selig (MSW, Young Women’s Breast Cancer Program in St. Louis and Washington University School of Medicine’s Siteman Cancer Center); as well as Mackenzie Ray (Cherokee resident, photographer, public health researcher); Anne McCullough (CSBA Liaison); and Sarah Colby (artist and Arts & Healthcare Coordinator at Barnes Jewish Hospital).

Please contact fort gondo at jessicabaran(at)gmail(dot)com if you would like to present a portrait on the window or facade of your Cherokee business or home!

Stay tuned for further updates!

  • Quoted

    “The beauty of the maturation of Cherokee Street over the past couple of months is that it has not shown a familiar trajectory for a St. Louis revitalization. There are no posh nightclubs with "pioneer" status nor any ultra-elite art galleries present.

    Rather, there's an organized community dedicated to improving quality of life and maintaining the uniqueness of St. Louis's most diverse and urban business district.”
