Francesca Passanise

Executive Director

Born and raised in the Saint Louis area, Francesca is a poet, curator, and mother. Prior to her current position at Art Saint Louis, Passanise was the creative and operational lead for Webster University’s Arcade Contemporary Art Projects in downtown's historic Arcade Building. Passanise’s commitment to fostering community connections and solidarity was visible, often partnering with local and national entities such as Bread & Roses of Missouri, Surface Design Association, Webster University’s Department of Music and the Webster Film Series to enhance the reach, awareness and access of each entity’s mission and programming through novel visual art exhibitions that challenged historic and current perceptions, engaged communal and intellectual inquiry, fostering multidisciplinary scholarship experiences within campus and community. Prior to her tenure in the University’s downtown exhibition spaces, Francesca served as President & Education Officer of the Santo Foundation, Director of Donor Relations and Development Communications for Webster University, and as Development & Special Projects Manager for Shearwater Education Foundation.
