About the Saint Louis Visionary Awards:
The Saint Louis Visionary Awards has been reimagined by an independent committee of women (many past Visionaries) to celebrate the numerous contributions and achievements of women who work in or support the arts in St. Louis. The Saint Louis Visionary Awards is a 501(c)(3) organization and has a committed board of directors who take great joy in honoring women working in the arts ranging from established arts professionals and arts educators to emerging artists and community impact artists.
The board of directors also offers angel fund tickets to members in our community who may not otherwise be able to attend the celebration.
