Outside In: Paint For Peace – Multiple artists create coherent whole in exhibitions across St. Louis

West End Word

September 7, 2016

Ferguson. Michael Brown. Everyone knows the story. An unarmed black youth, fatally shot by a white police officer on Aug. 9, 2014. That was then. As traumatic and often violent events rippled out from this initial tragedy and permeated lives, many artists and would-be artists chose not to respond with anger or hate but to create beauty. Documentation of those creative responses is currently on display at the Center of Creative Arts (COCA) and five other venues in the metro area. The hope is that these works will become a part of the growing international canon of graffiti art.
