Pulitzer Arts Foundation provides an intimate space for interdisciplinary collaboration and community engagement that focuses on the intersection of art, design, and culture. A non-collecting institution, the Pulitzer is committed to pushing the boundaries of the traditional arts encounter and presenting a highly varied program that invites visitors to think differently about art and its relationship to other disciplines and daily life. As part of its continued support of Grand Center’s revitalization and its vision to serve as a cultural destination for the St. Louis community, the Pulitzer brings together a diverse range of innovators, including artists, curators, and community partners, as its collaborators.

In conjunction with Ballroom Marfa and the Public Concern Foundation, the Pulitzer will bring Marfa Dialogues to the St. Louis metropolitan area, uniting individuals working across art, design, journalism, science, business, and activism to examine imaginative solutions to climate change and enhance awareness of the impact that our everyday actions have on the global climate. MD / STL is aligned with themes in the Pulitzer’s current exhibition, Art of Its Own Making, which features artists who examine materials, environment, and how generative elements impact the works of art they create.

Much of the MD / STL program will take place at Lots, a temporary, site-specific installation designed by Freecell Architecture for the PXSTL design-build competition. Launched by the Pulitzer, in collaboration with the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis, PXSTL was developed to transform a vacant lot adjacent to the Pulitzer in the heart of the Grand Center cultural district into an active community gathering space.

The Pulitzer is free and open to the public on Wednesdays from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please visit pulitzerarts.org or call 314-754-1850.
