STLCC Art Students Take Gallery Program to Manchester Courthouse

March 25, 2015

The Gallery Program  
Bob Bolla of Manchester Arts and STLCC student Michelle Streiff hang a painting by artist Vicki Hefty at the Manchester Police Department and Courthouse. 

Two years ago, students in the Art Club at St. Louis Community College-Wildwood launched a special program to meet their desire to get their art into the public eye, and the desire of local businesses to have original works of art in their spaces.

The Gallery Program was immediately successful and continues to expand farther and farther into west St. Louis County.

The newest exhibit is on the second floor Courtroom Gallery at the Manchester Police Facility. The exhibit was facilitated by Manchester Arts, a municipal arts council that seeks to inspire engagement in, and appreciation for, the arts. The show runs through April 10.

In addition to the Manchester exhibit, the students have displayed art at Starbucks, Wildwood Hotel, City Hall and Sunny Street Café in Wildwood, Walnut Grill and Manchester Veterinary Clinic in Ellisville, St. Louis County Library-Sachs Branch, Brooking Park and St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield, Maryland Heights Government Center in Maryland Heights, and Junk ‘n Java coffee shop in Pacific.
