The Saint Louis Art Museum’s building was designed by renowned architect Cass Gilbert for the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition, also known as “The World’s Fair.” Originally part of the “Palace of Fine Arts,” the Museum was the only building from the Fair designed to be a permanent structure, the “one material monument of the Exposition.” It stands as a reminder of that defining event in the history of St. Louis.
