 Think of it as your very own performance and gathering space. A former vacant lot, across the street from the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis’ Grand Center, is booked for more than a dozen events through October. But in between, bring your guitar and your friends for a sing-a-long under its floating canopies. Or relocate your book club there for the summer.

“We want people to just respond to the space in ways we haven’t even imaged yet — and neither have they,” Pulitzer executive Kristina Van Dyke told St. Louis Public Radio.

The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts opened a new exhibit Friday, February 14 exploring the evolving life of art. “Art of Its Own Making” features the work of more than 11 artists and is on display now until August 20.

“This is a show that looks at the interplay between viewers, artworks and the environment – how does one affect the other?” Pulitzer director Kristina Van Dyke said.

For example, Edith Dekyndt’s work, “Ground Control” is a big black ball filled with helium that reacts to viewers. The more people in the room with it, the higher the ball rises.

A project designed as a bridge across Delmar Boulevard begins construction this week and should be in place in early February. It's a contemporary concept with a low-tech twist: hand-delivered letters.

The “Wailing Wall,” envisioned by local musician and artist Damon Davis, was chosen last August from among other entries in a contest of ideas to address what’s known as the Delmar Divide. The term refers to income inequality north and south of Delmar Boulevard.
