The 2022 Creative Stimulus Award Exhibition is a group exhibition featuring six St. Louis-based contemporary artists: José Garza, Yowshien Kuo, Marina Peng, Janie Stamm, Simiya Sudduth, and Chloe West.
As recipients of an annual award sponsored by Critical Mass for the Visual Arts, these artists represent a dynamic and diverse group of creative thinkers. Some explore themes of identity, ecology, community, belonging, and displacement while others draw inspiration from popular culture, personal and autobiographical narratives. Their works range from a wide variety of methodologies and artistic mediums. This exhibition is organized by Critical Mass for the Visual Arts and in collaboration with COCA’s Millstone Gallery.
