Closing Reception: GatewayGIS Neighborhood Banner Project


Join the contributors to the GatewayGIS Neighborhood Banner Project: Learning North St. Louis History Through Design for the closing reception of an exhibition of eight banners on the museum’s west facade on Spring Street. The project was conceived as an opportunity for K–12 students to not only learn about past and present African American leaders and landmarks in our neighborhoods, but also to celebrate them through digital graphic design. This celebration event welcomes back the young artists who created the banners and the Resident Teaching Artists who supported them for art making activities, food, and public comments. At the close of the exhibition, one set of banners will be gifted to the classrooms of the student artists who created them.

Note: Students are encouraged to join a tour, activity, and dinner that will be offered from 3:30–5:30pm. Please contact for more information and to RSVP.
