We work every day to make Grand Center Arts District a vibrant, inspiring destination where a diverse array of arts, music, education and media can flourish together, and where world-class arts institutions are joined by a growing range of emerging, home-grown talent and opportunity. Our leadership is needed to ensure the District’s forward momentum and to promote the special connections that happen when so many extraordinary assets come together in one place.
Since our beginnings in 1981, Grand Center Inc. works to connect Grand Center Arts District’s great organizations with one another in a beautiful urban setting that invites people to come and discover new cultural experiences. Over the years, GCI has helped in the development of numerous buildings within the District that would have otherwise been demolished.
Grand Center Arts District is the landmark destination for arts and culture organizations, creative entrepreneurs and businesses in St. Louis and the Midwest. Discover block after block of eclectic venues offering everything from Broadway to Black Box Theater, Bebop to Beethoven, street art to galleries and sushi to soul food. Kick back in a park, debate the latest exhibits, witness world-class talent and cheer on aspiring artists. Every visit is fresh and new in this ever-evolving cultural crossroads.
