////////The Regional Arts Commission Presents
The Regional Arts Commission (RAC) presents IMPTXDESIGN.14/15., curated by Creative Reaction Lab. Opening the weekend of the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown, Jr.’s death, this exhibit will be one of many efforts in the St. Louis region igniting a call to action within our communities for racial equality and eradicating police brutality.
