St. Louis Celebrates ‘Sculpture City 2014’
This morning, our good friend and colleague Carlos Zamora stopped by our office to wish us a happy new year and drop off a few of his latest poster designs for Sculpture City St. Louis 2014.
Sculpture City Saint Louis 2014 is a yearlong initiative intended to draw attention to the region’s rich history and celebration of sculpture. From traditional forms to abstract modern monuments and the rise of public art, sculpture has long been part of how St. Louis has created and sustained a sense of regional identity.
Upcoming Sculpture City events include “Fif-TEA,” the 14th Biennial Teapot Exhibition opening at the Craft Alliance in the Delmar Loop on January 10, and Artist Emily Francisco’s “Learning to Play” at the Cecille R. Hunt Gallery at Webster University opening on January 31. And this April, don’t miss “Monument / Anti-Monument” – an international conference being held in St. Louis that will bring together artists, art historians, curators, academics, architects, urban planners, designers, archaeologists and other experts to explore contemporary thinking about the intersection of sculpture and the public realm.
