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.
