Post-concert interactive art display-CONFLUENCE

The theme of the post-concert interactive art project is "CONFLUENCE." It builds upon the idea of St. Louis being a natural geographic confluence as well as a confluence of people from many races, ethnicities and religious backgrounds, a theme which is represented by the participants of this Fifth Annual Interfaith Concert.


After the concert, participants will walk over a symbolic representation made out of chalk of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers as they go through the doors, down the steps of the Sheldon into the sidewalk and street. Their paths will converge under a stunning structural sculpture called "Living Bridges" created by the renowned artist Carol Fleming Marks.

All are invited to share their feelings, thoughts, prayers, and wishes for building a more harmonious St. Louis by writing them in ribbons which are then attached to the "Living Bridges" structure.
This is an opportunity for those who attended the concert and were touched by its profound meaning to intentionally carry over this sentiment into their lives and to share it with others.
