Collaboration Brings New Programs For Community Dialogue

During 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. These as well as other special events for 2018 came together with the inspiring leadership of Batya Abramson-Goldstein, Chair of Arts & Faith St. Louis Community Engagement.
