Best Art Gallery St. Louis 2013 - Blank Space
This storefront Cherokee Street space is true to its name, which readily declares itself a blank page for all things creative. Hosting everything from traditional art exhibitions to game nights to rap performances (and everything in between), this new venue has quickly made itself one of the most inclusive and diverse programs in the city, drawing eager crowds to partake in its eclectic brand of creative community organizing. Founded by Community Arts Training Institute graduate Kaveh Razani, Blank Space has even more expansive plans for its future, including a juice bar and tea house (among more pragmatic ambitions like installing a second restroom and building a formal website). In short, it invites you to fill in the blank.
