A St. Louis arts organization is building new exhibit spaces to better showcase local, national and international exhibits.
Barrett Barrera Projects wants to give St. Louis art lovers easier access to traveling exhibits. The company, which owns projects+gallery, will open projects+exhibitions on Manchester Avenue on Saturday.
It also will move to a new office space and open a guest house for traveling artists and curators, both on McPherson Avenue in the Central West End.
“We needed a place to showcase these exhibitions so that other museums can come take a look at them as they are already put together,” Susan Barrett, president of Barrett Barrera Projects, said of the exhibitions space. “It’s both a place where we can showcase our own exhibitions that we’re traveling as well as perhaps bringing other fashion exhibitions into St. Louis.”
