The Dark Room: Friday, 7 June 2019

Peace in the Prairie
Friday, June 7, 2019 at 5–9 pm.

Saint Louis Story Stitchers’ Peace in the Prairie expands the artistic body of work of African American artists, supports the exploration of natural settings by both artists and audiences and the greater understanding of Missouri's endangered prairies. The exhibition highlights photographic work collected for the project in Missouri prairie lands.

Tall green grass and starry nights,                                                                                                              Dilapidated residentials, such a sorry sight.
Endless plains, wild life and wild weeds,                                                                                                  Emergency vehicles, cops and sirens.
Post-traumatic stress,                                                                                                                            Living this inner-city life is so scary,                                                                                                        But I finally understand what I really need,                                                                                              Peace in the prairie.

Is the path towards peace through Missouri's prairies?
