Addressing Streets Issues

One way streets and speeding cars have been a major issue in our neighborhoods for years. The 20th Ward is putting some resources behind addressing the issue in a comprehensive, inclusive and transparent manner. Many people have differing opinions on these issues and so we have asked our traffic engineering company to host an informative meeting where we will be discussing preliminary findings of our traffic study and taking further resident input. At this time we are looking at Gravois Park and Dutchtown neighborhoods.

The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis is excited to announce its call for artists to participate in the 11th annual Open Studios STL, which will be held October 8-9, 2016. This weekend-long event connects the public to artists’ studios across the city and promotes dialogue about art-making in St. Louis.

To be eligible for participation, artists must maintain working studios or spaces in St. Louis City or St. Louis County. Gallery spaces are not eligible unless an artist is actively working in the space. In addition, CAM encourages individual artist participation from those in co-working spaces, university campuses, alternative spaces, residency programs, and arts organizations that host working studio spaces. In all spaces, we suggest that artists highlight works in progress.
