Through the Rainbow


This Wednesday, on the northeast corner of St. Louis' Grand Boulevard and Samuel Shepard Drive, work begins on A Chromatic Confluence, the temporary public art installation that will be the centerpiece of this year's Art Walk at Grand Center. The installation is a shimmering, hand-crafted rainbow of a maze, created from nearly 20,000 feet of multicolored string and filling a 25 by 65 square-foot space. When complete, the piece will be interactive; as visitors walk through the maze, they’ll face myriad paths, and in the weeks to come, special performances will be held inside the sculpture. Installation of A Chromatic Confluence will be supervised by the Austin, Texas, creative think tank "Thoughtbarn" and will continue until May 9. The piece will be illuminated in the evenings and be on display through June. For details and a sneak peek at what's to come later in the month, visit
