We couldn’t be more excited to show our support for Missouri’s LGBTQ community and offer this informative experience to City Foundry visitors. We are appreciative of the many local organizations that worked to bring the exhibit to St. Louis, including the Central Reform Congregation, the Jewish Community Relations Council of St. Louis, and Washington University Libraries.


See the exhibit on display now in the Food Hall entrance on Foundry Way through Thursday, February 3rd.
