Celebrate Halloween in Grand Center! CAM partners with the Pulitzer Arts Foundation and the Sheldon Art Galleries for a special Family Day Block Party. Costumes encouraged!

Kids will be able to decorate and add pieces to the garden. STL Improv Anywhere will lead a performance, and the New Art in the Neighborhood high school art students will guide special activities, including a bean bag toss with spooky prizes, a monster facepainting station, and helping kids create trick or treat bags to collect candy with on Halloween night.
