Elevate St. Louis: The Trestle Great Rivers Greenway By Diane Anderson Great Rivers Greenway hosted a free street party meets happy hour event to raise awareness about the Trestle, an old 1.5-mile abandoned elevated rail alignment in North St. Louis City. Great Rivers Greenway is working with St. Louis City and various partners aiming to convert the area into a linear park and greenway. The project is putting St. Louis on pace to become the third city in the world to transform an abandoned historic elevated alignment into a vibrant park and recreation destination. The other two are New York and Paris. Those who attended enjoyed samples from local food trucks while listening to the music by Gene Dobbs Bradford’s Blue Experience. Among those in the crowd were Mayor Francis Slay, Susan Trautman Executive Director of Great Rivers Greenway, Linda Goldstein Mayor of Clayton, Joshura Davis, Tammika Hubbard 5th ward alderwoman and Todd Antoine.

St. Louis’ history in music ranges from one of the oldest symphonies in the nation to strong roots in ragtime. Names like Joplin, Slatkin and Berry are synonymous with celebrated music and St. Louis. And then there’s Barbara Rose, whose gift to the city was organizing and presenting great jazz performances.
If the lights in St. Louis seem a bit dimmer lately, it’s because a great source of energy is about to head elsewhere. Susan and Warren Gelman, active supporters of the arts and other nonprofits, are moving to Palm Springs, Calif. after more than 30 years in the Gateway City. “We raised our kids here and it seems like home to us, even though I was born in Miami and Warren’s originally from New Jersey,” Susan says. “We love it here, but the kids have scattered everywhere, and we’ll be closer to them in California.”
EMILY RAUH PULITZER will be the guest of honor at the Contemporary Art Museum’s annual gala in March. Pulitzer, who has enjoyed a notable career as curator, collector and patron of the arts, is the wife of the late St. Louis Post-Dispatch publisher JOSEPH PULITZER. Together, they’ve amassed one of the country’s premier art collections with works by PABLO PICASSO, ELLSWORTH KELLY, ANDY WARHOL, RICHARD SERRA and others. The March 6 event at the Four Seasons Hotel will feature a special award presentation to Pulitzer for her contributions to the world of contemporary art.
