Enjoy a day of family-friendly programs throughout the Grand Center Arts District. This summer, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, the Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries, and the Pulitzer Arts Foundation will be transforming part of Washington Boulevard for a full day of family fun. The event will include a free barbecue, instrument making, and a showcase of musicians and dancers. The Block Party will also feature Drift Field, an interactive art installation on the grass lot across from the Pulitzer, led by St. Louis artists Sage Dawson and Meghan Grubb.
