Type of Evaluation
Counterpublic is a three-month civic exhibition in St. Louis featuring engaging and contemporary art aimed at expanding social, political, and civic horizons. The resulting exhibition will feature dozens of artists, collectives, and community organizers working together to present their work in St. Louis.
The Evaluation Center is partnering with Counterpublic to develop an evaluation plan, including a logic model and evaluation question matrix, with an emphasis on assessing the economic and cultural impact of the exhibition on the greater St. Louis region.
Counterpublic actively engages with community and cultural partners in St. Louis to engage the city’s histories and imagine new futures through contemporary art. Held every three years, the second edition of the civic exhibition will run from April to July 2023. The resulting exhibition will feature dozens of artists, collectives, and community organizers working together to make and present works in St. Louis that engage the city’s histories and imagine new futures. The festival also includes ongoing education, research initiatives, performances, publications, public projects, and commissions.
Counterpublic 2023 will feature an exhibition along Jefferson Avenue, charting the city from the Southern Riverfront, through the Brickline Greenway at Market Street, to St. Louis Avenue in North St. Louis, with the hopes of expanding social, political, and civic horizons in the St. Louis region and beyond.
