The Grand Center District of St. Louis, Missouri, attracts 1.5 million people annually from the greater St. Louis community and the Midwest to attend arts activities. The not-for-profit Grand Center, Inc. is partnering with the City of St. Louis and the St. Louis Regional Arts Commission on the design and planning of an art walk in the Grand Center District. The pedestrian space will connect St. Louis University Museum of Art with six other arts institutions along a four-block span. The design phase will include specific recommendations for improvements and capital investment, and design drawings for the walk. The art walk will contribute to Grand Center, Inc.'s plans to make the district a national destination for the arts and also increase the walkability of the neighborhood.
