Audio Guide

Art can be at its most powerful when experienced in conversation with others. In the Speak Up St. Louis Audio Guide initiative, community members of various ages and backgrounds bring their lived experiences to the unpacking art on view at CAM. Their reflections and stories add value to the infinite possibilities of how an artwork can unfold for someone, and might even invite you to take another look at CAM’s exhibitions.
