The Luminary | Center for the Arts is a 501(c)(3) artist resourcing institution that seeks to provide meaningful support to emerging artists, audiences and appreciators in the St. Louis area. As a combined studio, education, and exhibition space, we bring together a conversation from all areas of the art world, encouraging creative engagement with contemporary art production and processes.
The Luminary merges the ideas of art and service, providing needed resources to artists through our residency program, opening our space for free use to the public and bringing the greater community into direct contact with the diverse landscape of contemporary art through interactive art projects and engaging events.
HISTORY
The Luminary was founded in late 2007 as an artist-run resourcing organization in an effort to provide a sustainable platform for artists in the St. Louis area. Initially formed as a cooperative, The Luminary was established as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit in order to expand its influence into the greater local, national and international communities through its exhibitions, events and  programs.
Today, The Luminary operates an internationally-recognized 9,000 sq/ft gallery, studio and event space in a renovated former Convent and has received numerous awards and accolades including “Best New Multimedia Gallery” by the Riverfront Times and “Best Multipurpose Venue” by St. Louis Magazine.
RESIDENCY PROGRAM
The Luminary’s Residency Program is a part of our extensive interaction with the landscape of contemporary art. The Residency Program forms an integral element of our role as an originator of new works as well as providing unparalleled opportunities for artists to engage with the local community. The funded residencies bring together some of the best emerging artists working locally and, increasingly, around the world.
EXHIBITIONS
Our curatorial program presents 4-6 group exhibitions each season focused around a year-long theme. We showcase emerging local, national and international artists with an emphasis on cutting-edge contemporary practices. Our 4500 square foot gallery space is equipped with flexible lighting, video capabilities, and moveable walls for customized layouts for each exhibition.
INSTALLATION SPACE
Upstairs, we have a unique, dedicated installation space that often runs parallel to our main exhibitions. The 500 square foot space was formerly a chapel and has vaulted ceilings ideal for site-specific and immersive installations. We encourage artists to work within the space itself to create an engaging work that pushes the boundaries of what can traditionally be done in a gallery setting.
