Since our beginnings in 1980, Grand Center Inc. has worked to establish and grow Grand Center Arts District – St. Louis’s epicenter for the arts. Grand Center Inc. works to connect the district’s great organizations with one another in a beautiful urban setting that invites people to come and discover new cultural experiences. We lead physical investments to enhance the area’s ongoing development, and bring it all closer to St. Louis residents and visitors alike through marketing, place-making, and programming to create new opportunities to connect people with art – and with each other.
Grand Center Inc. works every day to make Grand Center Arts District a vibrant, inspiring destination where a diverse array of arts, music, education and media can flourish together, and where world-class arts institutions are joined by a growing range of emerging, home-grown talent and opportunity. Our leadership is needed to ensure the district’s forward momentum and to promote the special connections that happen when so many extraordinary assets come together in one place.
A great arts district brings people together and enriches lives. By ensuring that Grand Center Arts District continues to grow and thrive, Grand Center Inc. helps to entertain and empower people through arts for everyone and provides a platform for positive change in St. Louis – as well as a source of civic pride for our regional community.
