Mural Project Now on Display at Performing Arts Center Site
Kirkwood’s Arts Commission has sponsored a unique art project at the new Kirkwood Performing Arts Center currently under construction at 210 E. Monroe Avenue in downtown Kirkwood. The project brings together students from the high school and middle schools in the Kirkwood School District with students in the graphic arts program at St. Louis Community College-Meramec. Students have created 25 individual murals around the theme “Performing Arts” that were printed or painted on large banners. The banners are on display at the construction site on the fencing that surrounds it, from the corner of Taylor and Monroe Avenues and extending east along Monroe.
