Our Mission

The Kranzberg Arts Foundation is a community-driven organization dedicated to providing local artists and arts organizations the resources and infrastructure necessary for the arts to thrive in St. Louis—because we believe artists and the cultural communities they build represent the heart and soul of our city.

Through the development of performing arts venues, visual arts galleries, artist-focused programs, and workspaces for nonprofit arts organizations, the foundation nurtures the growth of artists, while working with emerging and leading arts institutions to engage with St. Louis’ greater community in ways that are relevant, inclusive, and inspiring.
