This episode of State of the Arts features Art St. Louis, an organization that nurtures the careers of talented visual artists.

We remember Bob Cassily, a creative visionary behind The City Museum and many works of public art, who died in a tragic accident. “In the Spotlight” for this episode of State of the Arts is Stray Dog Theatre, a feisty small theatre group with a dedication to outreach. Also the diverse roots of the city of Kirkwood are explored in an exhibit that documents the lives of early African-American residents. And so much more!
