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.
