What inspires you?

As some of you may already know, we're working around the clock (well, at least during day) to ensure our Inspired Art Show is a huge success. Not familiar with the project? Read on.

The Inspired Art Project enlists local artists to create and donate original works, inspired by original poetry written by students participating in America SCORES St. Louis. Started a few years ago by another SCORES affiliate in the Bay Area, the Inspired Art Project is being realized here in St. Louis.

Through this cycle of inspiration and influence:

  • students will witness their creativity brought to life,
  • artists will build connections with diverse communities around the City, and
  • SCORES’ supporters will see the profound impact these youths’ words can have on others.

Artwork will be displayed alongside the original poem and sold at the Inspired Art Show on March 20, 2010. Proceeds from the Inspired Art Show will directly benefit SCORES, providing free, creative writing and soccer after-school programming to elementary-aged students in St. Louis.

Want to get submit a piece of artwork, attend the show, or sign up to volunteer?
