Boots Contemporary Art Space
White Flag Projects
For my third post about the arts scene in St. Louis, I wanted to get the perspective of two newer arts spaces in town – White Flag Projects and Boots Contemporary Art Space. Both opened about two years ago, and have filled a void – each in their own way – in St. Louis’s contemporary art scene. They often get mentioned together (something I’m perpetuating in this blog post…) but the differences in their outlook on St. Louis are as interesting as their similarities. So I asked the directors – Juan William Chavez from Boots and Matthew Strauss from White Flag – the same three questions.
Question one: What’s the current state of the arts scene in St. Louis?
Question two: What do you think still needs to happen?
Question three: How do you see your organization fitting in?
