(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A few St. Joseph moms are bringing some creativity to midtown.

Over 200 Edison Elementary School art pieces are on display in the Salvation Army building on the corner of 22nd Street and Frederick Avenue.

The window display is called "The heART Gallery", and is focused on Art against Violence.

The art pieces are all done by Edison students. One mom and co-founder of the gallery said with the amount of crime in midtown, she hopes this display will bring hope to the kids who live in that part of town.

"We wanted to make sure that our kids understood it's not just about getting through life and just surviving, but to step out and make a difference," Michelle Rautmann, co-founder, said.

Rautmann said this display would not have been possible without the help of the Salvation Army.

"Well you know, we invest in our children as they are our future," Major Abe Tamayo, Salvation Army, said. "Where we invest in them today, creates who they are tomorrow."

Rautmann said they hope to change the art pieces regularly to match the season.

After Monday's system moves away, we will see the return of sunshine and even warmer temperatures for Tuesday. Highs Tuesday will likely be in the lower 60s. The warm weather continues until the next chance for widespread rain that comes late Wednesday into Thursday morning as another cold front pushes through the area. We'll have cloudy skies by Thursday afternoon, but it will be much cooler with highs in the mid 40s.
