David Kovaluk

David Kovaluk is a visual artist living in St. Louis. He has a Bachelor's degree in photography from Webster University, and he currently works for St. Louis Public Radio as their creative everyman. His day-to-day responsibilities tend to be a mashup of graphic design, web design, photography and any other visual design challenge the station can throw at him. David is decidedly a cat person, loves a good DIY project, collects vintage cameras and lenses, and believes fluorite is the most beautiful mineral.

Several hundred men, women and children gathered in Jefferson City and St. Louis County on Tuesday asking Gov. Mike Parson to lift his statewide stay-at-home order and let Missourians get back to work. 

Some protesters ignored social distancing restrictions and stood close together, with only a few wearing masks. They held signs that read, “Poverty Kills People Too," "Freedom For Missourians” and “We Have Rights.”
