Saint Louis Story Stitchers is grateful to be Artists in Residence at Kranzberg Arts Foundation in the Grand Center Arts District since 2014. Check out the Stitchers Youth Council on the pages of the Kranzberg Arts Foundation’s first ever SOUL of the CITY publication!
Story Stitchers will premiere Peace in the Prairie at the Kranzberg Arts Foundation’s .ZACK Theater, 3224 Locust on March 21, 2019.
Peace in the Prairie supports the research, creation and public presentation of a completed conceptual work of art by artists exploring the juxtaposition of violence in St. Louis’s urban environment and the peacefulness of Missouri’s natural prairie landscapes.
The project expands the artistic body of work of African American artists in the Collective, addresses the community need of understanding violence while seeking peace, supports the exploration of new natural settings by both artists and audiences, and supports the greater understanding of Missouri’s unique natural heritage in its native prairie lands.
Leading artists in this project include Jamie KP Dennis, Reggie McNichols aka Ntegrity, Troy Anthony Swanson, Bobby Norfolk, Demil Johnson, and contributing artist Susan Colangelo.
Peace in the Prairie is presented with support Missouri Arts Council, Missouri Foundation for Health, and Kranzberg Arts Foundation.
