Beyond the Walls

Better Family Life is a non-profit in St. Louis which strives to help build and maintain strong families. Their project, “Beyond the Walls”, is a series of outdoor murals to help beautify vacant buildings along Page Blvd between Kingshighway and Skinker. Two local artists have been involved, Chris Green and Cornell McKay. Chris has painted images of successful African Americans (with St. Louis connections) and Cornell has painted symbolic images. Both artists have put inspirational images where there once was once only blighted out buildings.

State of the Arts is St. Louis’ only program devoted to the region’s vibrant arts community, taking audiences behind the scenes to meet the artists, writers, and performers who call St. Louis home.
