The Luminary's operating standpoint as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization allows it to work within the community inciting cultural change through original programming in the worlds of art and music.
"I think the most important aspect of being a nonprofit is that your goal is social benefit rather than financial gain. We approach everything in terms of how it will benefit the area culturally, serve a particular group of people or provide opportunities that were not there before."

The Luminary's quickly gained notoriety serves as a propulsive force in the space's evolution. "We definitely did not expect the kind of response we have seen over the past few years," says McAnally. "We initially intended to only be an artist studio space and resourcing center, so the development of everything else has come pretty organically."
By allowing its vision to evolve and expand, the Luminary has become a unique inspiration in a city full of potential.
"I think our ambition only grows with our ability to pull things off, but we want to create something that is unique not only to St. Louis, but nationally," McAnally says. "The more we see other places, the more we realize that what is possible here is truly extraordinary, and we hope to be a part of that."
