History Museum in Forest Park, located at Lindell and DeBaliviere.

AFA St. Louis' General Manager is Evalyn Williams,
who oversees operations and programs. Special thanks to
projectionist Errol "Bud" Stanfield, who generously donates time and

This is a St. Louis community effort, and
our past underscores our future. We'd like to thank Margie Newman,
who launched AFA St. Louis and, with
co-curator emeritus, Marc Syp, provided
stellar programming to St. Louis for three years. We also wish to thanks our previous hosts,
and Tracy Varley of Mad Art Gallery. Thanks for a wonderful three years!
