Pulitzer Arts Foundation

Opened in 2001, the Pulitzer has grown into an institution with an international reputation. Through changing exhibitions, world-renowned architecture by Tadao Ando and innovative programming, the Pulitzer serves as a place of both experimentation and reflection for artists, scholars, students and the general public. Each exhibition at the Pulitzer strongly relates the art to the architecture, instead of emphasizing an art historical narration or presenting works from a specific collection. A personal experience with the artwork is a key aspect of the visit; therefore there are no labels to detract from an immediate aesthetic experience. The Pulitzer is free and open on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Contemporary Art Museum

Located near Grand Center, the Contemporary Art Museum provides a unique artistic experience for the art lovers. The architecture of the building is loft-like with winding staircases, polished cement floors, and a sterile appearance, complete with white walls and straight lines that accentuate modern appeal. Exhibits on the floor are often representative of impressionistic, abstract and unusual creative feats. Most of the displays have a socially relevant story behind them. Gallery openings are always fun as the featured musicians and hor's d' oeuvres can be as otherworldly as the exhibits themselves. Make a trip to visit the museum or schedule a group tour.

Philip Slein Gallery

Philip Slein created the Philip Slein Gallery alongside partner Tom Bussman to showcase the kind of art that strikes their fancy. The pieces on display represent the figurative artistic styles of vintage and new age national and local artists. Many of the retro-contemporary exhibits tend to show where art has been, as well as venture into predictions of where art is going. Other areas of focus in the arts are on the underground art styles from New York and Chicago, with some local St. Louis figurative art sprinkled in. One can find examples of graffiti, comic book art and satirical propaganda. It's an interesting place to spend an afternoon. Stop by during normal business hours, or make an appointment.
