Led by internationally reknown artist and creative placemaker Theaster Gates, Rebuild Foundation will expand its revitalization work in the north St. Louis neighborhood of Hyde Park by transforming a vacant building and adjacent lot into an arts and design-centric urban amenity activated by diverse programming developed in partnership with the community such as The Listening Room project that will share archives of Black music with the neighborhood, a cultural food program, an artist-led forum on neighborhood public space and an incubator for local craftsmen and artistic entrepreneurs.
