Arts-Based Community Development Convening
Transforming Post-Industrial Cities through Art and Innovation
April 12 through 14, 2012 - St. Louis

Cherokee Street

An historic landscape that is being re-purposed for everything from art studios to Latino-run restaurants to music venues to print shops, the sprawling Cherokee Street business district has become one of the most popular sections of St. Louis. A true creative hodge-podge, and one that keeps growing, Cherokee Street is a telling example for urban areas who choose to use art and business in a mutually beneficial movement towards regeneration.

Cherokee Street will be the site of the Closing Party for Rustbelt to Artist Belt : At the Crossroads on Saturday evening. Buses will take conference participants from the Chase to Cherokee and back again. We encourage you to soak in the Street as much as possible!The schedule will look something like this:

6-8 pm: walk the street to view art, shop, create, hear music, mingle, eat, drink

8-11 pm: conclude the evening with a special party at ArtDimensions Gallery @ 2720 Cherokee Performing Arts Center with art exhibit, music, and bar

Special thanks to media partners Nine Network of Public Media, KDHX-FM 88.1, and 11 Magazine and to  STL-Style,  Alchemy 7 Creative,  and ArtDimensions Gallery @ 2720 Cherokee Performing Arts Center. Thanks to all the venues, businesses, artists and neighbors of Cherokee Street.
