Ellisville Arts and History Council

Our mission is to enrich the lives of our citizens and visitors by integrating both our history and works of art into public spaces across Ellisville for all to learn, admire, and enjoy.


We will do this by: 

  • Conducting art exhibits and programs for all ages.
  • Commissioning works of art to be enjoyed by all in our public spaces.
  • Displaying historical artifacts, stories and photographs about Ellisville and the surrounding area.


The City of Ellisville is part of the Creative Communities Alliance (CCA) which is a coalition of municipal and nonprofit organizations dedicated to the development of community arts in the St. Louis region. One of the CCA programs is Sculpture on the Move.

The sculpture pictured below is located in front of the Park Administration Building in Bluebird Park. It is a brass sculpture and it is titled World is her Canvas. The sculptors are Lee Leuning and Sherri Treeby of Bad Rivers Artworks of Aberdeen, South Dakota.
