The Luminary Center for the Arts

In a former convent on Kingshighway just west of Tower Grove Park, the husband-and-wife team of James and Brea McAnally have created an unusual new arts venue they call an "artist-run resource center." The Washington University grads (Brea's a photographer, James a musician) offer support for post-BFA/MFA graduates in the form of a residency program; they've transformed the little cells that once housed nuns into private studios. They also initiated a music series, which takes place in the labyrinthine space's lower portion. And they provide a classroom for teaching artists who submit proposals to instruct free medium-specific salons for all ages — subjects have ranged from the art of comic books to collage. Wait, there's more! The Luminary houses an exhibition space for contemporary art, an installation room for site-specific work, a café and a library.
