ST. LOUIS — There is a new organization here in St. Louis helping artists of all kinds strengthen the business side of their brains. It has been a rough couple of months with big events being postponed, but the St. Louis Arts Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce a brand-new endeavor they are launching this month. Executive Director of the St. Louis Arts Chamber of Commerce, Sandy Brooks is here to tell us more.
This is a new not for profit organization that has been around for a bout a year and a half. Sandy explains the goal is to provide support for artists in the business realm while working to increase awareness of the arts. There are two large city-wide, multi-partner, multi-month programs that St. Louis Chamber of Arts and Commerce hosts. One program has to do with arts and conservation, and the other with arts and social justice issues.
The Chamber is also excited to announce its new Art Expo. The hope is to give artists the opportunity to earn their living, especially in a year where many art gatherings and fairs have been cancelled.
Sandy notes that the St. Louis art community brings in more money and visitors than all the St. Louis sports teams combined. This includes when the Rams were here.
