Transformation will offer a tutorial of the paper making process, a paper pulp painting activity, and an installation of plants found in the St. Louis landscape that examines the urban nature of vacant lots as a metaphor of growth and vitality in the city. The event is open to all, but participants are encouraged to register with Hannah Reinhart at email@example.com or by calling (314) 588-9600, ext. 104.
A design-build competition organized by the Pulitzer and the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, PXSTL has transformed a vacant lot across the street from the Pulitzer building into a destination in the heart of Grand Center with the temporary pavilion Lots, designed by Freecell Architecture. The Pulitzer has awarded thirteen community program grants of up to $1,500 to local individuals, groups, and organizations to fund programs that respond to Lots and activate the PXSTL site.
