2016 St. Louis Visionary Awards
The St. Louis Visionary Awards celebrates the numerous contributions and achievements of women who work in or support the arts in the greater St. Louis region. Founded in 2003 by Grand Center, Inc., the St. Louis Visionary Awards is now presented by an independent committee of women dedicated to promoting the arts in St. Louis.
From established working arts professionals and arts educators to emerging artists and community impact artists, each year's honorees are always truly "visionary". To date, 75 such extraordinary women have been honored as Visionaries.
