How Art Builds Community

The Center for the Humanities invites you to join speakers from across the Midwest and St. Louis in exploring the power of art to effect changes in urban neighborhoods and communities. The majority of artists live in cities and their work often addresses urban concerns of health, happiness, diversity, security, freedom of expression, and a sustainable environment. We examine such questions as: How do art and artists help sustain our cities? Why should we support the work of artists? Why do cities need art and vice versa? Why should citizens and voters know about the artists and art projects in their communities and beyond?
