St. Louis Art Museum Groundbreaking Ceremony

Today marked the groundbreaking for the expansion of the St. Louis Art Museum.

Among other friends I bumped into Robert Powell (executive director of the Portfolio Gallery and Education Center), and Freida Wheaton (woman of the arts and owner of Salon 53). Every time I meet her Freida has joined another board. In a chock-a-block crowd inside the tent, I stood by her and watched the St. Louis art world roll by.

The groundbreaking ceremony itself came a little earlier with gold shovels. Inside our party tent servers wearing hard hats circulated as best they could bearing trays revealing nuts & bolts or architectural plans under glass.

In less than three years there will be an underground parking garage and more breathing space for all the collections.
