Moments of Silence

In response to the Ferguson crisis, a group of local artists, The Coalition of Artists for Peace, assembled a collection of artwork and created a touring exhibition entitled, Moments of Silence: A Response to the Ferguson Experience. It’s a reflective exhibition on the state of human relationships in the wake of a national crisis. Moments of Silence will visit a number of Universities in the St. Louis and Jefferson City metro area through May 8th. The exhibition will travel to Harris Stowe State University in St. Louis City (January 23-February 6), to Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri (Feb.15-March 3, Artist Reception Feb. 20, 5-7 pm) and back to Florissant Valley Community College, in the Ferguson-Florissant suburb of St. Louis County (March 11-May 8, 2015, Artist Lecture & Reception March 11, 1:30-3:30 pm).

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.
