Collaborators

Pulitzer Arts Foundation collaborates with individuals and institutions committed to ambitious, risk-taking creative projects that cannot be accomplished anywhere else. Our collaborators are diverse in method and message, but they share a common goal: the exchange of ideas as a transformative and generative act. Through these collaborations, the Pulitzer creates a space for exhibitions, programs, and other endeavors that both activate our building and encourage our audience to think differently about art, architecture, and design in the world around them.

In 2009, Pulitzer Arts Foundation worked with the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis, Metro Theater Company, the Alzheimer's Association, and Cole Elementary to develop Let's Look. The program paired adults with early-stage dementia with fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students from Cole in a ten-session workshop on the Old Masters. The lessons included art history, architecture, storytelling, and nonverbal communication. With Let's Look, the arts were positioned as an instrumental tool toward accomplishing goals such as bridging generation gaps, promoting community, and advancing both an awareness of and appreciation for diversity.

Big Brothers Big Sisters

Youth Mentoring Organization
Big Brothers Big Sisters

Big Brothers Big Sisters works to provide children with the opportunity to receive mentorship and pursue goals for themselves and their families. In 2008 and 2010, the Pulitzer hosted a series of interactive workshops designed to enhance the exhibition experience for eleven pairs, or "matches," of the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. A workshop during their visit to stylus included an in-depth exploration of Ann Hamilton's use of papier-mâché hands, through which participants learned the significance and diversely communicative power of hand gestures. During Ideal (Dis-) Placements: Old Masters at the Pulitzer, the matches created and presented artwork that invited discussion about the exhibition and the idea of an "ideal placement."

In conjunction with the exhibition Reflections of the Buddha, the Council hosted their annual mindfulness colloquium at the Pulitzer, engaging a dialogue that centered on both the mindfulness in art and the art of mindfulness. Guest speakers included Dr. C.S. Wu, President of the University of the West (an accredited Buddhist Studies program in Los Angeles), and Dr. Beata Grant, Professor of Chinese and Religious Studies at Washington University in St. Louis. The day concluded with mindfulness meditation.
