Sculpture City Saint Louis 2014
Client: Laumeier Sculpture Park
Location: St. Louis region
Sculpture City Saint Louis 2014 is a year-long collaborative program convened by Laumeier Sculpture Park with regional colleagues to support and promote sculpture in the St. Louis region. The initiative has engaged the community in a conversation about the rich presence of sculpture in the city through social media, online resources, public programming, as well as an international conference. In 2012 Via Partnership began working with Laumeier and the Sculpture City Steering Committee to manage all programming and communications related to the initiative.
As part of Sculpture City, Via planned and executed Monument / Anti-Monument, a three-day international conference in St. Louis that brought together experts from around the world to explore contemporary thinking about the intersection of sculpture and the public realm. With eight different sessions and multiple tours around the city, the conference focused on public sculpture and monuments of St. Louis in addition to providing global viewpoints of sculpture and its role in our society.
