Public Art in Creve Coeur
SCULPTURE ON THE MOVE
The Creve Coeur Arts Committee participates in the annual Sculpture on the Move program as a way to promote public art and introduce new sculptures to the city's rotating art collection. The Sculpture on the Move program is a statewide art-on-loan program with nearly two dozen participating Missouri cities. Through the program, cities can install high quality, original artwork in their communities for a two-year period for a minimal cost.
Creve Coeur has three Sculpture on the Move locations: (1) Shoppes at Westgate, (2) the Dielmann Recreation Complex and (3) LaVerne Collins Park.
Sculpture on the Move is coordinated by the Creative Communities Alliance, a coalition of municipal and nonprofit organizations dedicated to the development of community arts in the St. Louis region. The City has been a member of the Creative Communities Alliance since 2018.
Public Art in Creve Coeur
Beginning in August 2009, the Creve Coeur Public Art Task Force, now named Arts Committee, was charged with investigating public art in Creve Coeur and developing a public art master plan. As part of this process, the Task Force worked to identify all existing public art in the city. Identified examples of public art will be inventoried and mapped in order to heighten awareness of public art in the community and aid the community in considering future placements of public art.
Public art in Creve Coeur refers to original quality works of art in any media for temporary or permanent placement in accessible public places. Examples of public art already identified include:
