In fall 2017 Arts & Faith St. Louis and the Saint Louis Art Museum began a collaboration to offer opportunities for the St. Louis community to deepen interfaith dialogue and understanding through the visual arts.

INTERFAITH ART "DROP-IN" TOUR

             Museum's Information Center Main Building


We have received rave reviews for these tours, led by experienced and inspirational SLAM docents. These specially designed tours focus on artworks which reflect a wide range of faith traditions and inspire questions and conversations among the tour leaders and participants. The hour and one half-long tour will depart from the Museum’s Information Center in Sculpture Hall in the Main Building at 3 pm.  The tour is free, no reservations required.  


In addition to drop-in tours, community groups are welcome to request Interfaith Tours for specific dates/times at slam.org/learn. Congregational groups are invited to contact InterfaithPartnership at 314 918-2541 for assistance in scheduling their tours and to explore the possibilities of partnering between congregations.
