Major Sculpture by Renowned Artist Kehinde Wiley Coming to New DOORWAYS Campus; A Long-Term Loan from the Gateway Foundation

DOORWAYS is thrilled to announce that a major sculptural commission by Kehinde Wiley, one of the nation's leading artists, will be permanently sited on our new Campus.

The work is a generous long-term loan to DOORWAYS from the St. Louis-based Gateway Foundation.
