The St. Louis Post-Dispatch stopped by The Urban Studio Cafe the other day to capture our story on video. The day they visited, The Cafe hosted a youth mural project led by artist Kristen Doecke. The video is a wonderful snapshot into our world and our community. Take a few minutes to watch it by visiting the Post-Dispatch website below. Thanks to reporter Elie Gardner for putting together such a nice profile of The Urban Studio Cafe:

Here are a few additional screen shots from the video:
