Our Mission

The St. Louis Art Place Initiative seeks to create wealth and equity through homeownership for low and moderate-income artists of all disciplines.

We realize this vision through the creative re-use and preservation of vacant and deteriorating properties. We work with existing community organizations, civic leaders, small business, and other government and civic agencies to ensure that our housing initiatives meet the needs and serve the constituents of the community while developing and integrating artist live/work spaces which enrich the lives of the artist, existing neighborhood residents and the St. Louis region as a whole.
