Visual Art

The Kranzberg Arts Foundation Visual Art Program showcases outstanding, relevant works from a diverse range of artists in the St. Louis community.  In collaboration with area nonprofits, artists, and educators, the Kranzberg Arts Foundation challenges established concepts of what art is and does, and engages with the community in new and meaningful ways. This spirit of innovation, experimentation, and community make the Kranzberg Arts Foundation Visual Art Program one of the premier visual arts destinations in the Midwest.

The Kranzberg Arts Foundation is steadfast in its commitment to fostering artistic expression. As an institution, we maintain a policy of non-interference, ensuring that artists featured in our venues are afforded the ability to explore and express their creative visions without restraint. Please note that the views and opinions presented by the artists do not inherently represent those of the Kranzberg Arts Foundation, nor do they reflect the perspectives of our trustees, staff, or patrons. This principle underscores our dedication to supporting artistic diversity while upholding the integrity of our mission.
