Katherine and I are in St. Louis today. She is giving a presentation at the University of Missouri – St. Louis on engaged scholarship, and I’ve been taking in a few sites.
The St. Louis Museum of Art, located in beautiful, manicured, and huge Forest Park was a pleasant surprise. It contains a surprising number of quality Impressionist pieces, plus several rooms of in situ period furniture collections and early Buddhist tapestries.
We’re currently at Busch Stadium, taking in an afternoon game before heading back to Memphis this evening.
A big thank you to UMSL for asking Katherine to come to their campus to speak to their faculty!
