“There are two things that interest me: the relation of people to each other and the relation of people to the land.” – Aldo Leopold

This short walking tour and interactive session explores the Grand Center Arts District. Learn about the Grand Center Green Streets Initiative, see the newly renovated Sun Theater and visit the new studios at local radio station KDHX.

St. Louis continues to undergo revitalization with a focus on “Sustainable Development” to meet the needs of the present while contributing to the needs of future generations. More than just a destination to enjoy a performance, Grand Center is developing a holistic community around the arts. Explore how St. Louis art and education institutions are changing the urban landscape of St. Louis.
