Through this manifesto, I pledge

  • to reject as inevitable the reality of long-standing divides between black and white citizens in my city,
  • to reject as inevitable the reality of long-standing divides between rich and poor citizens in my city,
  • to use the unique opportunities created through the arts to challenge the barrier separating the areas to the north and south of Delmar Avenue,
  • to ask my fellow artists what their plans are for expanding the Grand Avenue Arts District north of Delmar,
  • to promote the expansion of the arts district across Delmar Avenue,
  • to install my art north of Delmar Avenue,
  • to invite all of St. Louis to experience art north of Delmar Avenue,
  • to share the process of coming together in dialogue and relationship to create positive change in my city,
  • to act on my belief that art can (and should) change the world and, lastly,
  • to proudly own the idealism expressed through this manifesto.
