The New Art in the Neighborhood spring session was in the midst of exploring stop-motion animation—using the early history of the medium as a point of inspiration—before COVID-19 interrupted the sessions early on. On display are collaborative and individual works created during a workshop led by artist Elizabeth Desrosiers, in which participants learned to create scale model furniture and miniature items built from found objects and other materials. Originally intended to serve as another means to create stop-motion animations, the results are instead photographs of constructed interior scenes, eerily reminiscent of our time spent indoors as we sheltered in place just a few weeks later.

Since 1995, CAM’s New Art in the Neighborhood program has sought to nourish the creative minds of our city’s talented young artists. Every Saturday afternoon during the school year, up to twenty teens, selected through a competitive application process, come to CAM for pre-professional-level art instruction with educational staff and visiting artists. This intensive approach provides participating students with opportunities and resources that are not available in their regular school curriculum. This free and nationally acclaimed program offers students experience with materials used in contemporary art practice.

New Art in the Neighborhood is generously supported by Bayer Fund and Crawford Taylor Foundation.

New Art in the Neighborhood: Interiors is organized for the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis by José Garza, Museum Educator. Spring 2020 New Art in the Neighborhood artists: Riannah Bauder, Deja Brewer-Moore, Kimmeran Cade, Orquidea Campbell-Espinoza, Dalonte Chatman, Sophia Edgell, Isabelle “Izzi” Jackson-Cameron, Finn Kanak, Audrey LaBeaume, Olivia Langbehn, Cecilia Merlone, Margaret Nigh, Peter Rowlyk, Mya Stevens, Kallista Stewart, Kailee Templemire, Katherine Welch, Jamijna Westbrook, and Chelsea Zuckerman.
