Jenny Murphy

The health of St. Louis’s cultural and social democratic community has been recently championed by some special individuals. Namely a little place called Perennial. When St. Louisian’s think of a homegrown community the Cherokee renaissance might be the first thing that comes to their minds. But don’t forget about Carondelet! There are a few places sprouting up. Talk of “pop-up” gallery project with weekly cultural events every Friday starting this May, a community garden already in full swing, and the Broadway Bean, a coffee house with a stage room for music, movies performance and poetry are just a few of the culturally stimulating things happening on South Broadway. But we will go into more detail about that later. Perennial was founded by Jenny Murphy who has done reuse workshops around town and has been awarded grants from Wash U and support from several sponsors. Jenny holds a BFA in sculpture from the Sam Fox School of Design. She runs workshops teaching people in underserved communities how to turn trash into treasure, and more importantly she is fostering a local creative atmosphere.
