The Morse Group helped to build an
mechanism to engage the community around creative projects, art
exhibitions and events for residents in the Richmond Heights community
and surrounding neighborhoods. The objective was to build
something that could be sustainable and managed by the Richmond
Heights systems and staff. Over a number of years, TMG built,
managed and subsequently turned over the ownership to Richmond Heights
after their staff and systems were in place.
To start the process, TMG engaged
city leaders in a visioning and strategic planning session to outline
the goals and objectives for an annual art plan and Master Plan
The Morse Group was involved early
in the design phase of the Heights Community Center, which would host
the Community Art initiatives.
Programs and projects to date
include a series of annual exhibitions featuring artwork by regional
artists, public art through the St. Louis Regional Arts Commission
“People Project”, and an annual Art Market featuring works for sale by
Each year, TMG designs and
coordinates a community art project that engages more than 800
elementary school students in Richmond Heights and the neighboring
communities of Brentwood, Maplewood and Clayton.
This project gives students and
teachers from nine different area schools the opportunity to work
together to create a large, collaborative public art installation for
display in the atrium lobby of The Heights. The exhibitions and
community art projects are a signature program that The Heights
Community Center uses as a model to promote to other communities
