Kranzberg Arts Residencies

The Kranzberg Arts Foundation has long been a major patron of the arts in St. Louis and is committed to aligning our resources to aid in and advance the flourishing renaissance of the arts in the St. Louis area. Growth in the local arts community is now more vigorous than ever, however, the shortage of affordable artists’ work and presentation spaces has been a clear obstacle in the path of our artists. In consideration of this problem and in support and recognition of St. Louis area artists, the Foundation  is redefining and expanding our short and long-term residency programs.

The Foundation hosts partnerships with over 150 arts organizations and presenters in the St. Louis region and provides an intersection of arts  venues and work environments that serve a full range of artistic processes. We encourage your exploration of our spaces and hope you will find, within our network, potential that will deeply enrich your artistic practice.  

 Most of our venues are located in the heart of the Grand Center Arts District in Midtown St. Louis and  are surrounded by some of  St. Louis’ most distinguished cultural assets,  including the Fox Theater, St. Louis Symphony, Contemporary Arts Museum,  The Pulitzer Arts Foundation, Jazz St. Louis,  the home of Public Media and so much more.

The mission of the Artist in Residence Program is to help each participant define, pursue, and achieve their individual goals as an artist. Each resident will exit the program with improved skills, new professional relationships, and increased knowledge. Listening to the multi-layered voices that compose the cultural identity of St. Louis “ and service to that community “ are mainstays of the KAF mission.
