Award Winning Photographer, Kristi Foster St. Louis Photographer

The exhibition St. Louis at 250 is a culmination of a citywide photo contest begun in the fall of 2013 and ending on February 23, 2014, which marks the 250th anniversary of the founding of St. Louis. The contest, which was a collaboration between the Sheldon Art Galleries and the St. Louis Beacon online newspaper (Now merged with St. Louis Public Radio in December, 2013), garnered over 500 entries. The final exhibit of 100 photographs shown in three Galleries, was juried by Eric Lutz, Associate Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs at the Saint Louis Art Museum, John Nagel, Executive Director of the Photographic Art & Science Foundation (International Photography Hall of Fame) in Grand Center; Robert Duffy, a founder and editor at the St. Louis Beacon (now campaign director of St. Louis Public Radio); and Olivia Lahs-Gonzales, Director of the Sheldon Art Galleries. Contestants in three entry levels, Amateur, Professional and Children were invited to send in photos in three categories: “Places and Architecture,” “Neighborhoods and Events” and “People.”
