An exhibit benefiting Sk8 Liborius and LUAS, coordinated with Paint Louis and curated by KAF
The mission of Sk8 Liborius and the Liborius Urban Art Studios, LUAS (501c3), is to preserve the historic St. Liborius Church and Rectory, transforming it into a skate park, art, music, and education center. We strive to give people of all ages and backgrounds the chance to improve themselves and our community through new skills, vocations, and art — all inside the oldest Neo-Gothic Church west of the Mississippi River.
For the past 11 years, all of the construction done on the church has been all DIY, with the help of hundreds of volunteers. The next step in our mission is to bring the building up to the current IBC/St. Louis City occupancy code so we can open the doors to everyone. Sk8Liborius and LUAS are currently raising $1 million to fund the construction cost of those repairs and renovations. Every single dollar raised from this art show goes towards this effort.
For the past 7 years, Sk8 Liborius has been proud to partner with Paint Louis to host an invite-only after-party for street artists from around the world who come to St. Louis to paint the flood wall during Paint Louis. The walls of the church are covered with dozens of murals painted during these parties. This gallery show is a collection of work painted after the 2022 Paint Louis, as well as other work painted in the church. All of the pieces were donated by the artists to help in the fundraising efforts to save Sk8 Liborius and (LUAS).
