Grand Center, St. Louis' premier Arts and Entertainment District, is delighted once again to host the Grand Gallery Walk, Friday, May 16 from 5 to 9 pm.
The Grand Gallery Walk offers visitors a journey through Grand Center's historic streetscapes lined with galleries-large and small-featuring an eclectic mix of paintings, sculpture, photography, pottery, jewelry and mixed media from world-renowned artists. Guests are invited to design their own course for an enchanting stroll through more than a dozen galleries and museums throughout the District. Complimentary trolleys will be on hand to welcome participants aboard for a delightful twilight tour of Grand Center's exciting collection of artistic venues and exhibits. Signage throughout the District will indicate designated trolley stops.
