The St. Louis Artists' Guild presents Displacement and Migration, a national juried exhibition that investigates the current or historically forced or voluntary relocation of individuals or groups of people who no longer inhabit their place of origin. Jurors Anita Fields and Basil Kincaid selected 49 artists with work exploring the complexities of this theme today and throughout history from a personal perspective. This exhibition will feature artworks and educational programming in conversation with slavery, apartheid, war, homelessness, and diaspora motivated by culture, politics, religion, and climate. The awards presentation led by Basil Kincaid will begin at 6:30 pm with cash prizes totaling $1000.
