Art And History Collide At The Saint Louis Art Museum
St. Louis’ key arts institution, the Saint Louis Art Museum, is one of the finest in the U.S., with an extensive collection with pieces spanning from ancient masterpieces to contemporary icons. As a center where the finest minds in art-history scholarship, restoration, curation and more come together, the museum has evolved into a community gathering space for artists and the St. Louis community, helped by its free admission.
The museum has two upcoming exhibitions, including “Sunken Cities: Egypt’s Lost Worlds,” which will be on view from March 25 through Sept. 9, 2018. The exhibition will showcase artifacts and sculptures gathered through a tremendous feat in underwater archaeology, an expedition that found two previously undiscovered cities of ancient Egypt in the Mediterranean Sea. Opening March 30 and on view through August 30, the exhibition “Chinese Buddhist Art, 10th-15th Centuries” will showcase rare Chinese Buddhist art, which evolved its own recognizable style and form through the centuries.
With fascinating subject matter that blends the artistic and the historic, the Saint Louis Art Museum makes its prestigious works accessible for all to view and enjoy, set amidst the foliage of St. Louis’ large green space, Forest Park.
