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.
Trailnet is committed to advocating for bicyclist, pedestrian, and commuter rights in the St. Louis metropolitan area, as well as promoting events that increase awareness of alternate modes of travel in the city. For their annual Tour de Museum, Trailnet works with the Pulitzer and other local arts institutions—including the Saint Louis Art Museum, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, and the World Chess Hall of Fame—to map out a group ride between the venues, which also includes tours, programs, and activities. For the Art and Tweed Bike Ride in 2013, riders were encouraged to dress in their finest tweed blazers, knickers, caps, and vests.
Cinema St. Louis actively contributes to the presence and variety of cinematic experiences in St. Louis through screenings, programs, and education. Pulitzer Arts Foundation has partnered with Cinema St. Louis for a number of short film competitions that invited filmmakers to respond at exhibitions the Pulitzer. These exhibitions included Dreamscapes, Dan Flavin: Constructed Light, and Water, and the winning filmmakers presented their works to the public by projecting them onto both the inside and outside of the Pulitzer building. Cinema St. Louis has also sponsored a number of screenings at the Pulitzer, including films by Andy Warhol, Krzysztof Kieślowski, and Peter Greenaway, among others.
