Pulitzer Arts Foundation, St. Louis

3716 Washington Blvd, St. Louis
The Pulitzer Arts Foundation was established in 2001 by Emily Rauh Pulitzer, who—together with her husband Joseph Pulitzer Jr.—had originally sought to create a space in which to install works from their private collection.

The inaugural exhibition featured a selection of works from the Pulitzers’ private collections, including artwork by Roy Lichtenstein, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko, Kiki Smith, and Andy Warhol. Beginning with the second exhibition, Selected Works by Ellsworth Kelly from St. Louis Collections, the Pulitzer extended the scope of its exhibitions to include works outside of the family's private collection, and this practice has driven nearly all subsequent exhibitions.
