Pick the City UP 2018 Tour begins!


The Sheldon Art Galleries presented a special event, Pick the City UP Glo Sho, in conjunction with the exhibit, Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective: Pick the City UP.

On Tuesday, March 20th, 2018 “Pick the City UP Glo Sho!” presented Saint Louis Story Stitchers’ unique brand of urban storytelling, featuring original, family-friendly spoken word, hip hop music and B-Boy dance moves on public health issues, including gun violence prevention. St. Louis’ top young performers and their mentors encourage attendees to become a part of the movement to help make our city a healthier and happier place for all.

Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective: Pick the City UP exhibition in the Nancy Spirtas Kranzberg Gallery (through April 21, 2018) presents an overview of recent Saint Louis Story Stitchers’ projects that focus on stopping gun violence, furthering the message through dynamic music videos, colorful documentary photographs, youth poetry from the Curating Teen Voices portfolio, and music and spoken word events.

Funding for the program was provided in part by Missouri Foundation for Health through a grant to Saint Louis Story Stitches.

Additional funding provided by Alison and John Ferring.
