Room13Delmar is a mobile studio celebrating the creativity that exists north of Delmar in St. Louis, Missouri. Beginning our seventh year, Room13Delmar is a collective of artists with deep relationships of creative trust. These relationships are at the center of our artistic development and our understanding of our power to create change as citizen artists.

“What I love about Room13Delmar is that it is truly a community based project. Ilene deeply understands what it means to work with people, not for. Now in its sixth year, it is powerful to see how some of the older women in particular have taken ownership within the studio, they make the decisions, their views on what art is have expanded, and I can see how they now more deeply recognize the power they have in their own creativity.”
