Our July Insider is Laura Schilli, newly appointed Development and Events Manager for Grand Center Inc. Laura lists her favorite places in the District and we love them all too! 

  1. Rise Coffee at CAM – “Coffee, food and art! Three of my favorite things all combined into one. I was jumping for joy the minute I heard that Rise was moving into one of my favorite art museums.”
  2. Pulitzer Arts Foundation – “At the Pulitzer, I find myself experiencing contemporary art in a meditative way. There’s something about the environment that is incredibly peaceful and engaging to me. I could spend hours there.”
  3. Bronson House – “I have a weak spot for outdoor patios and this hidden gem has one of the best in Grand Center along with amazing cocktails. The ambiance is to die for!”
  4. International Photography Hall of Fame – “My background is in photography and IPHF exhibits a rich history of photographers and iconic images that you can easily get lost in.”
  5. Public Media Commons – “A great place for social gatherings and events, plus it’s the home to my favorite radio station, St. Louis Public Radio!”
