Exhibit A – Art by Architects

All About Exhibit A…
Exhibit A – Art by Architects is an annual charitable event sponsored by Cannon Design for the benefit of one of the many extraordinary non-profit institutions in St. Louis. The event was first conceived to commemorate the grand opening of the revitalized Power House, now home to Cannon Design.

Built in 1927 as part of the Municipal Service Building complex and listed on the National Historic Register, the Power House had been vacant for over 25 years and was in serious decay. For years, it was known as the “tree building” because of a large weed that had thrived on its roof at 11th & Clark Streets downtown. You’ve probably seen it on your way to a baseball game.

Cannon Design breathed new life into this prominent building with its signature arched windows, and through an internal design competition, created LEED-Gold award-winning offices for the leading international architectural, engineering and planning firm.

The first Exhibit A event was a celebration of restoration and renewal. It also signified Cannon’s longtime commitment to the city of St. Louis and urban causes. To advance the beginning of a tradition, De La Salle Middle School in the Ville neighborhood of north St. Louis was selected in 2008 and 2009 as the inaugural beneficiary. Its remarkable educational work with remarkable but exceedingly challenged young people is, indeed, remarkable.

This year, Cannon Design is thrilled and honored to partner with COCA’s Urban Arts Programs, an equally remarkable organization that is changing lives through exposure to and hands-on experiences with the arts.

Art is what Exhibit A is all about. Kent Turner, now president Cannon Design North America, speculated that there might be interest in the St. Louis community in the sale of sketches and drawings by renowned architects. Cannon hoped that such interest would be enhanced knowing that proceeds would yield a meaningful benefit to a worthy organization.

The Exhibit A silent auction features original signed drawings and sketches donated by notable (and generous) architects from around the world. Some of the work is produced specifically for the event. Some is a product of current or recent design work.

The Art by Architects is all very cool, collectable, and for an exceptional cause. It is beautifully framed and ready to grace a space in your home or office.

Also in the mix this year we offer award-winning photographs from the American Institute of Architects National Photography Competition, produced by AIA St. Louis.

The event will be held on Thursday, November 18 from 5:30 until 8:30 pm.

Be there for a uniquely memorable evening! It’s remarkable!
