A digital exhibit of the art of Aaron Douglas and other important Harlem Renaissance artists will be on display in the Main Library care area through February. 

Come out and paint a piece of artwork on canvas! Guided paint or self-directed. BYOB. Bring your favorite drink and creative spirit! 

As you can assume from the title, the vinyasa class is a bit more fast-paced than & a killer workout. 60-minutes of moving and breathing with intention, all while hip-hop/R&B songs play in the background. AKA everything you love about yoga, but with better background music! Plus, as always we end the night with Happy Hour.

Internationally renowned documentary photography Eugene Richards will speak about his career and the powerful works in his retrospective exhibition, Eugene Richard: The Run-On of Time. A book signing will follow.

Prior to Richards lecture, enjoy a FREE screening of his short, documentary films, running repeatedly from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Ideal for yogis or health enthusiast that appreciate a delicious brunch and energetic workout.

Our Saturday Bootcamp and Brunch experience at The Grid is the perfect way to jump start the weekend. Kick off Saturday morning at 9am with an hour long workout with Dawn Rattan & Everfit Gym and Craig Donnell Jr. appropriate for all levels. 

We hope that you will join us as we discuss some of the important issues facing us today. With the protests in the NFL, The St. Louis PD protests, Charlottesville and others dominating the headlines and national discussion, it is more important than ever to try to get to the heart of some of what is real, and what is not.

Have you always wanted to paint with more freedom and expression? Have you always wanted to learn techniques behind abstract art? In this class, you will learn how to draw and paint intuitively while learning a variety of mark making techniques and color theory. We will learn about some of the famous abstract painters and look at the concepts behind non representational painting. You will be encouraged to try new things and think outside the box.

As more white folks are drawn back to the city, individuals and developers are buying up land, businesses, and housing stock. This development displaces people of color, resulting in a cultural & historical loss and perpetuating economic disparities. Are we breaking down the Troost divide or simply pushing it further east?
