Science & Arts Summer Experience (SASE)

Science & Arts Summer Experience (SASE)

The month-long Science & Arts Summer Experience (SASE) program enables Saint Louis youth to explore diverse art media at local greenspaces with significant environmental and historical value. Students visit area natural and cultural sites, and then use the arts to interpret and reflect on these experiences. Also key to the program is realization of a community service project. This summer, SASE participants are working with local artist William Burton to design and paint masonite tiles that will serve as interpretive markers along a pedestrian walkway in the Calvary Cemetery Prairie, a regionally significant restoration site. Installation of the markers will be commemorated by a community festival during which SASE students will act as docents. In the fall, the markers will be reassembled to create a traveling mosaic piece to be displayed at other SASE partner sites.
