Room13Delmar Favorite 



Jan 1 2012


St. Louis, Missouri

Room13Delmar is a tricycle-based mobile studio conceived as a sculpture: a cross between a vending tricycle and a ‘Mary Poppins’ bag that unfolds to create a space for creativity on the sidewalk, at a senior center and at a veterans medical center, north of Delmar in the city of St. Louis, Missouri. Delmar is considered to represent a major socioeconomic divide in the city, it demarcates the division between the poorer, mostly African American neighborhoods located to the north, from the wealthier, largely white ones to the south.

The goal of the project is to provide a visible public space for the creation of art. The mobile studio is conceived as both a celebration of the creativity that already exists north of Delmar, as well as a critique of the absence of creativity in the offerings of the Arts District. The project allows a one-day residency program dedicated to one artist of the neighborhood who receives a small fee, aiming at proposing different activities around the mobile studio.
