The Luminary is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit founded in 2007 as a forum for artistic research, production and presentation, conceived in response to both our immediate and international community, alongside our audiences, and in dialogue with artists.. As a combined studio and exhibition space, The Luminary proposes, supports and presents exceptional art embedded in social and cultural contexts, viewing contemporary art as an essential expression of the present. Through a diverse range of programs and events, including residencies with leading artists, critics and curators from around the world, large-scale group and solo exhibitions showcasing local, national and international artists, as well as innovative publications and public commissions, we seek to be an institution of our time, as malleable as the work we strive to support.


We are located at 2701 Cherokee Street in St. Louis, Missouri.
