You have a passion for the arts. You believe that art is fundamentally important to the health and vitality of our community. This is why you support the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis.

The Contemporary is an institution built on a passion for the arts. Twenty-nine years ago, a small group of visionaries founded an organization dedicated to promoting public conversations about the art of the present—they named it the First Street Forum after its address in Laclede’s Landing. Then, just a little more than five years ago, the Forum’s Board of Directors had the passion and vision to expand the scale of the organization dramatically, rename it the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, and build an amazing new home for it in Grand Center. Your passion for the Contemporary can be seen through all we do. Your passion for our exhibitions is reflected by the thousands of people who attend our exciting opening nights. Your passion for learning is exhibited by standing-room-only crowds for our distinguished speakers. Your passion for improving our community is shown through your support of the education and outreach programs that make a difference in lives of St. Louis youth. At the heart of all of this is your passion for the arts and your commitment to making our community a better place. The stories that follow in this special 5th Anniversary edition of MESH are a small example of how your passion for the Contemporary helps improve the quality of life in St. Louis. Great non-profit organizations need great communities to support them. At the Contemporary, we are most fortunate to have an engaged and caring community that gives generously of its time, its talent, and its resources. To all our members, donors, volunteers, and supporters, from our Board and staff, thank you so much for being passionate about the Contemporary.

You are making great things happen.




“It’s hard for me to believe that the Contemporary opened its doors just a little more than five years ago. In this short period of time, the Contemporary has presented a number of exhibitions that challenge the way we see the world and has offered diverse education programs that inspire us to think about art differently. I am proud to be a part of an institution that is not only generously supported by the St. Louis community, but is also recognized internationally for the work it accomplishes. The past five years have shown us that future possibilities are infinite. As we go forward, I’d like to express my deepest appreciation to those who have given us support. Your investment in the Contemporary allows our visitors to enjoy a wide range of exhibitions, education, and public programs. Without your support, we simply would not be able to do what we do. Thank you.”

- Paul Ha, Director

Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis Unlike many museums, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis does not have a permanent collection of art. The exhibitions change regularly, so there are likely to be new works on view each time you visit. In fact, since many artists come to St. Louis to create new pieces just for their exhibitions here, you may even catch the smell of fresh paint as you walk through the doors. The Contemporary’s exhibitions range from major installations by international artists who fill the Main Galleries, to experimental short-term projects by emerging artists in The Front Room, to exhibitions, such as the Great Rivers Biennial, which present new work by artists within the St. Louis community. The art exhibited at the Contemporary changes dramatically from one season to the next, but our commitment is constant: to present the most innovative and relevant art being made today. The Contemporary aims to present the type of work that makes you stop, take notice, and think about art­—and the world around you—in new ways.

Exhibitions Whether presenting major exhibitions by world-renowned artists or giving young artists their first shows, the Contemporary’s Main Galleries are a place where amazing things happen. With constantly changing exhibitions and site-specific works of art, we can’t always tell you exactly what you will see next at the Contemporary. However, we can guarantee that you will see a first; such as the first solo museum show by a young artist like Gedi Sibony; the first exhibition showing early work by superstar Cindy Sherman; and the first time the work of two contemporary art favorites have been examined side-by-side, like Jim Hodges and Andy Warhol. If we do our job well, years later, when the artists have become well-known and their work is hanging at MoMA or the Saint Louis Art Museum, our visitors can say, “I saw it first at the Contemporary.”



“We believe that it is important for young artists’ works to be seen. The Contemporary has a fantastic program which fosters these artists. It is a privilege for us to support the Contemporary and the many young artists who inspire us.”

— Charlotte and Bill Ford, National Advisory Board Members

“Immediately inspired by the shows and efforts of the St. Louis community, the young artists at White Flag Projects, and the masterful vision of the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, I set to work on the physical intricacies and light opportunities inside the rooms of the Contemporary to see what was already there and to find what I already had, but had never seen. The enthusiasm and encouragement to experiment from the curator and staff facilitated the most concise and comprehensive show I’ve ever had. I’m grateful for this opportunity.”

— Gedi Sibony, exhibiting artist, 2009

Great Rivers Biennial The wildly competitive Great Rivers Biennial program, launched in 2003 by the Contemporary and the Gateway Foundation, aims to propel the careers of our city’s talented artists to new heights. The Contemporary believes there is no better way to support the careers of our community’s artists than to give them financial support and the opportunity to develop a major museum exhibition. The Great Rivers Biennial enables the Contemporary to do just that: every two years the museum awards $20,000 each to three St. Louis artists who have been selected by a distinguished national jury, and works closely with them to present a large-scale exhibition in the Main Galleries. Previous winners have enjoyed continued successes since their exhibitions at the Contemporary, and many are influential members of the St. Louis arts community. Juan William Chávez started out as student in the Contemporary’s New Art in the Neighborhood youth education program before attending the Kansas City Art Institute, and later, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2006, he returned to St. Louis and cofounded Boots Contemporary Art Space, an artist-run space on Cherokee Street, before being selected as one of the Great Rivers Biennial winners in 2008. Some Great Rivers winners are pursuing careers as working artists in St. Louis while others have moved to other cities around the world. We are eager to see what stories unfold from the next Great Rivers Biennial, opening in April 2010.

“The Great Rivers Biennial Program is a face melter! It’s the best gig in town and the number one opportunity for artists living in St. Louis!”

— Juan William Chávez, Great Rivers Biennial 2008 award recipient



City-Wide Open Studios In St. Louis, you don’t have to look far to find talented and dedicated artists. They live and work all around us. Their studios can be found in loft spaces Downtown, among the antique shops on Cherokee Street, and in renovated spaces in Grand Center. For an entire weekend every summer, St. Louis artists come together to open their doors to the public as part of the City-Wide Open Studios program. Beginning with 40 artists participating in the first year, the program recently featured more than 120 artists from all around the area who engaged the community directly in a conversation about art. The Contemporary has always felt that one of the best parts of contemporary art is the opportunity to talk with living artists about their work. We are proud to present City-Wide Open Studios, Flat Files, and the Great Rivers Biennial to connect the St. Louis public with the creative heart of our community and encourage a dialogue about visual art.



“The Contemporary gives St. Louis the best and most comprehensive view of cutting-edge work today. I’m always excited to see what is coming up next on their exhibition schedule! The Contemporary’s support of young artists through education and funding is one of the most noble art enterprises happening in the Midwest.”

— Tom Huck, artist





Education Programs Contemporary art can be challenging—even intimidating. We get that. That’s why we offer a diverse line-up of education programs that aim to take the fear out of contemporary art. During the Contemporary’s Girls’ Night Out exhibition, the Guerilla Girls presented a free public lecture to a standing-room-only audience of more than 300 guests, and then spent the afternoon with high school students in the New Art in the Neighborhood program. The Contemporary is proud to offer a broad range of education programs for the St. Louis community, including lectures, gallery talks, podcasts, and hands-on workshops for adults, as well as Free Family Days and outreach programs to children in the public schools. These programs are all designed with one goal: to help people better understand and enjoy contemporary art.



New Art, Making a Difference When people think of the Contemporary, they usually think of two things: exhibitions and events. Many people aren’t aware of the Contemporary’s outreach initiatives that make the community a better place. One of the best examples of how the Contemporary’s work is making a difference is expressed by Stan Chisholm’s story. Stan Chisholm is a young man who grew up in South St. Louis with his mom and his nine brothers and sisters. He was a good, quiet kid who loved to draw. Through his childhood, his family moved often, and even struggled with being homeless. By the time Stan was a senior in high school, he and his family moved to Eureka, Missouri, and Stan started attending a new school. His art teacher recognized his artistic talent and encouraged him to apply to a program that would allow him to explore his talent further, New Art in the Neighborhood.

Stan and his fellow classmates also learned how to create a portfolio of their artwork. The group took a field trip to Washington University in St. Louis for National Portfolio Day where they were able to show their work to admissions staff representing art schools from around the country. It was there that Stan met the admissions officer from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago who was impressed by him and his work, and encouraged him to apply to the school. Stan is now completing his fourth year at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has returned to St. Louis every summer to work at the Contemporary as a gallery attendant and to volunteer at Free Family Days, and last year, he had the special opportunity to return to the New Art classroom as a visiting artist. He led New Art students in an art workshop and also provided them with advice on college and careers in the visual arts.

Beginning that fall, Stan became dedicated to New Art. Just a senior in high school, he took the initiative to figure out how to get the Contemporary from Eureka by bus. He woke up early every Saturday to make his trip, and he made sure he was at each class.

Stan is one of more than 200 students who have participated in the New Art in the Neighborhood program since it began in 1995. Because of the generosity of donors, every student receives a full scholarship to attend this competitive, hands-on art program.

Every week, Stan spent four hours in the Contemporary’s New Art classroom working alongside 20 other creative teens. Throughout the year, he had the chance to work with and learn from instructors and visiting artists, including British video artist Keith Piper, Japanese art superstar Yoshitomo Nara, and Chicago-based artist Dzine. He learned how artists use different media to shape their ideas and to create work, and inside the New Art classroom, Stan found inspiration.

New Art boasts an incredible success rate: more than 85% of students who have graduated from the program over the years have gone on to college. Many, like Stan, want to be artists. Others take the lessons they learned in New Art about teamwork, creativity, and collaboration to pursue other careers.


The Contemporary is pleased to announce that starting in 20092010 New Art students will be able to receive college credit from the University of Missouri-St. Louis, giving them an even greater head-start on life.


New Art in the Neighborhood students with visiting artist Kimiko Yoshida.

“As a senior in high school, my schedule is pretty crammed, but I don’t mind putting my other activities aside to go to New Art in the Neighborhood every Saturday. New Art is by far the greatest art program I’ve come into contact with in St. Louis; it takes talented kids from all over the city and gives them free space and materials to simply create, without any limitations, and with only one rule: to respect each other. On top of that, New Art students get to take part in the hip world of the Contemporary, and meet with great artists who are making a living in the ‘real world’ by doing what they like. New Art in the Neighborhood is pretty much the best thing ever.”

— Rachel Waldemer, New Art student



Collaborative Programs Years from now when Metro Academic and Classical High School students gather to eat lunch, talk about their troubles, and share their joys, they will be taking part in a story that began with a small group of students who imagined they could use art to bring the community closer together. Inspired by the Maya Lin: Systematic Landscapes exhibition at the Contemporary in 2007, Tom Tobias’s International Baccalaureate Art class seized the opportunity to work with the Contemporary to create a permanent outdoor sculpture at their school. Students worked with artist Ilene Berman over the course of two years, exploring public sculpture in a variety of contexts and learning about design, materials, the relationship of sculpture to the landscape, and the purposes of public art. After several different plans were presented and debated, the students arrived at a final design. The work, Untitled (Gathering Place), is a circle of clay “seats” formed by the students. The piece was installed on the school grounds in May 2009. Students learned many important lessons through this process. In particular, they learned how to listen to and respect the ideas of peers, when to compromise, and when to seek new solutions to problems. The sculpture now serves as a lasting legacy of the collaborative process to future students.



“My students have been so fortunate to have the opportunity to work on this project with the Contemporary over the last two years. In the process of completing the sculpture, the students have used critical thinking, communication, and problem solving skills to create a project budget, an installation plan, and produce a spectacular piece of art for the entire school and community to enjoy.”

— Tom Tobias, International Baccalaureate Art Teacher, Metro Academic and Classical High School, St. Louis Public Schools



School Outreach Just as children grow strong with a balanced diet, they also benefit greatly from having healthy servings of the arts. At the Contemporary, we believe that early and frequent exposure to the arts is critically important to the health of young people in our community. That’s why we are committed to providing outreach programs that teach youth about contemporary artists and ideas, encourage creative problem-solving and critical thinking skills, and build self-esteem. Throughout the year, the Contemporary sends artists to work with teachers in the St. Louis Public Schools, organizes school group tours, and develops collaborations with community members, teachers, and students, all with the purpose of developing creativity and fostering a deeper understanding of art.



“As a parent, I’ve seen the benefit that creating art can have for kids of all ages. That’s why I am so glad the Contemporary brings art into the public schools so kids in our community have the opportunity to experience the joy of art.”

— Dorte Probstein, Contemporary member, with her daughter Karina



Free Family Days Although contemporary art can sometimes be difficult to understand, it’s not hard to find ways for parents and children to learn about the artists, the exhibitions, and the ideas and concepts behind them. Our Free Family Days offer many ways for the young and old alike to come together to learn about contemporary art. Thousands of families have participated in these special days by creating sculptures with recycled materials, posing for family portraits, creating collaborative maps of the world with sidewalk chalk, and enjoying many other hands-on activities inspired by the art in our galleries. Who knew contemporary art could be so much fun?



“Bank of America has long held the belief that a healthy community is a healthy place to do business. Arts organizations like the Contemporary add vibrancy—and edge ­­—to our community, making St. Louis a great place for people to live and work. We share the Contemporary’s strong commitment to education, and are delighted to provide operating support for its outreach efforts that bring the arts to thousands of youth and families each year. This underscores Bank of America’s belief that investing in the capacity of our non-profit organizations and enabling them to do great things is the way we can make real change possible.”

— Patricia L. Mercurio, President-Missouri, Bank of America and Contemporary Board Member Emerita Marylen Mann

Artist and Curator Talks Contemporary art is challenging and often inspires conversation. The Contemporary believes that it is extremely important to foster these conversations, and that is why we bring scholarship and art commentary of the highest caliber to St. Louis through a variety of lecture programs. From presenting cultural leaders such as MoMA Director Glenn Lowery to hosting Internationally-renowned artists such as Maya Lin, we hope to engage the St. Louis community in a dialogue about the ideas and issues of our time.



“My husband David and I are honored and proud to support the Annual Distinguished Speaker Series. It is quite a treat for us to experience such profound and stimulating talks from the likes of Glenn Lowry of MoMA, Michael Kimmelman of The New York Times, and most recently, Robert Storr. The fact that our support enables the Contemporary to present this series free and open to the public brings us real joy. It is our hope that many will be seduced, as we were, by the wideranging talks, exhibits, and other educational programs at the Contemporary, and that art will become a part of their everyday lives.” — Susan Sherman, Contemporary Board Member with Contemporary Director

Paul Ha and MoMA Director Glenn Lowry



Special Events The size and diversity of Opening Night crowds speak volumes about the popular appeal of contemporary art in St. Louis and the museum’s exciting line-up of programs and events. Each year, the Contemporary hosts dozens of free public programs and special events designed especially to engage and delight members of the community. Bustling evening receptions and stimulating lectures by artists, critics, and curators provide insight into the works on view, while events like Playground of the Ridiculous, DJ/Magic, and Select Nights have entertained the after-work crowd with live performances, music, poetry, and art. For fans of the Contemporary, the museum isn’t just a stimulating and exciting place to be—it’s a unique and memorable experience as well.

There was magic in the air at the Four Seasons when a crowd of more than 400 came together to honor Tom Friedman and the late Ernest Trova and to celebrate the Contemporary’s first five years. Special emcee Deborah Roberts of ABC News set the evening’s elegant tone and Aileen Agopian, director of contemporary art at Phillips de Pury & Company, New York, led an unprecedented live auction of seven works of art— including a surprise piece Tom Friedman created just for the occasion. By the time the final paddle fell, the Contemporary’s supporters had generously donated more than $378,000 to support the museum’s exhibitions and education programs. Thank you for your generosity and continued enthusiasm for bringing today’s most important artists to St. Louis.

Highlights of Our History 1979 - 2003

1979 - A group of civic, cultural, and educational leaders, alarmed with

the prospect of an “artless” Downtown, come together with the hope of maintaining the presence of art as a complement to commercial activity.

1980 - First Street Forum (the Contemporary’s original name) is founded by a group of visionaries to “foster open discussions on issues of public interest.” 1981 - The First Street Forum opens in a 1,600 sq. ft. space on First Street in Laclede’s Landing in March 1981. Inaugural exhibition, from the Museum of American Folk Art, New York, opens, Small Folk: A Celebration of Childhood in America. 2001 - The ground-breaking of construction on the new, permanent building at 3750 Washington Blvd. designed by Architect Brad Cloepfil of Allied Works Architecture.

1992 - The Forum relocates to the recently created Grand Center Arts and Entertainment District. The Board realizes the importance of this opportunity to become the visual arts anchor for this ambitious development.

1988 - The First Street Forum changes its name to “The Forum for Contemporary Art” and moves to 555 Washington Avenue in the heart of downtown. The new facilities allow for larger and more complex exhibitions and a lecture/performance space. Most importantly, the new location offers access to a larger number of people and the opportunity for a wide range of programs that interest them.

1995 - New Art in the Neighborhood, an education program providing arts education to local teens, debuts.

1998 - Capital and Endowment Campaign kicks off to raise funds for a new permanent building in Grand Center.

1979 1980 1981


















Highlights of Our History 2003 – now

2006 - The Contemporary launches ArtLink, a collaborative young friends group, with other St. Louis art organizations. City-Wide Open Studios and Flat Files connect the St. Louis community with regional artists.

“It’s unveiled. It’s in your face. It’s accessible and inclusive. It’s a place to meet your friends after work. It’s a date. It’s a statement. It’s different for everyone. And it’s becoming part of the city’s make up–and not just for those artsy folks anymore.”

2003 - Inaugural Gala, a star-studded event, celebrates the opening of the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis.

– Arch City Chronicle, April 4, 2006

Inaugural exhibition, A Fiction of Authenticity: Contemporary Africa Abroad.

“Checking out the exhibits at a local art museum has always been a worthy pastime. But for more than a year, the Contemporary also has made it equally accessible and comfortable.”

“[ The Contemporary’s] wide-open galleries collide with performance spaces while its yards of window-walls entice communities through the Grand Center cultural district with potentially vivid drive-by art experiences.”

– Bethany Prange, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, November 30, 2006

– Ann Wilson Lloyd, The New York Times, October 12, 2003

2005 - The Contemporary Challenge

2004 - The first Great Rivers Biennial highlights the work of three emerging artists from the St. Louis area. Annual Distinguished Speaker Series kicks off with a lecture by Glenn Lowry, Director of the Museum of Modern Art.

“The Great Rivers Biennial program has galvanized the arts community in St. Louis. The energy it has generated, combined with the recent momentum of community-based arts organizations, has transformed the city’s artistic zeitgeist for the better.”

– Ivy Cooper, Art Papers, May/June 2004

campaign launches with a $1 million gift from Alison and John Ferring and a $5.4 million challenge gift from Emily Rauh Pulitzer. The Contemporary ArtReach education program brings the arts to St. Louis Public Schools. The Contemporary starts podcasting and blogging, and is among the first museums in the country to do so. Monthly Select Nights make the Contemporary the place to be in St. Louis for twenty and thirty-somethings.

“This museum is putting St. Louis on the map. With each new exhibition and program, the Contemp[orary] continues to reinvent itself.” – Rudy Zapf, Playback:STL, October 2005







2007 - The Contemporary successfully meets the Pulitzer Challenge and pays off all building debt, and raises a $5 million endowment—before its 4th birthday. New curatorial team takes the helm at the Contemporary.

“. . .the Great Rivers Biennial, funded by the Gateway Foundation and hosted by the Contemporary Art Museum, is at the top of the heap…” – David Bonetti, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, August 12, 2007

2008 - Chief Curator Anthony Huberman’s

inaugural exhibition, John Armleder and Olivier Mosset, is presented. Contemporary launches The Front Room series of short exhibitions by artists and others.

April 2009 -

The Contemporary hosts its 5th Anniversary Gala at the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis honoring two St. Louis greats, Ernest Trova and Tom Friedman.

“A Contemporary Milestone. It’s a paradox, that juncture where something inherently modern celebrates history. It’s been five years since Brad Cloepfil’s ‘intentional vacancy that achieves meaning through the art itself’ rose at the corner of Washington and Spring. In that time, the museum’s exhibit—from Yoshitomo Nara’s ‘Nothing Ever Happens’ to Bruce Nauman’s neon—have challenged and enhanced the city’s art scene.”

– St. Louis Magazine, April 2009

The John Armleder and Olivier Mosset exhibition is named “Best of 2008.” – Bob Nickas in Artforum
