Art Along The Rivers

What do a 1,000-year-old Mississippian figurine, a 1910 photo of three young boys at work and the plans for the building of the St. Louis Arch have in common?

They’re all part of a diverse exhibition offered by the Saint Louis Art Museum. “Art Along the Rivers: A Bicentennial Celebration” marks Missouri’s 200th year of statehood by bringing together more than 150 objects (including the figurine, photo and plans) from around the confluence region surrounding St. Louis.
