Join us on Friday, November 13, 2015 as we celebrate the art created by our patients at the opening of the annual Ranken Jordan Inspiration Gallery. This year we are partnering with local St. Louis artists who will showcase their work next to the creations of our talented kids. As you view our kids' artwork you will learn how they express themselves and heal through their artwork. Prepare to be inspired! Both the Ranken Jordan artists and the local St. Louis artists will have artwork available to purchase that evening. We hope you will leave the event with your own personal masterpiece!
St. Louis Artist Gala
Eight local St. Louis artists who represent the St. Louis artistic community have been chosen to show ...their artwork at the Inspiration Gallery. The work of these artists compliments the Ranken Jordan mission and is innovative, whimsical, breathtaking and even interactive. These artists will have work for sale at the Inspiration Gallery Opening Night. Artists that will be at the Inspiration Gallery include:
Philly Alex Johnmeyer
The Ranken Jordan young artists artwork will be displayed side by side with these local St. Louis artists. Our kids will get to see artwork from professional artists and have their artwork included in a professional gallery opening event.
Theraputic Art at Ranken Jordan
Art has a strong therapeutic value. Our kids utilize art as a means to faster physical and emotional recovery. Through theraputic art, our patients develop:
