“Founded in 1879, the museum was relocated to it’s current home in Forest Park for the 1904 World’s Fair. Designed by famed architect Cass Gilbert, the Museum’s Beaux-Arts style building bears the inscription

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.

“A synthesis of Byzantine and Romanesque design”
On May 1, 1907, construction began & work on the Cathedral would continue for another 80 years.
In 1997, the Cathedral was designated as a Cathedral Basilica by Pope John Paul II, who honored the Basilica with a visit on his history-making tour of the United States in 1999.

“Mirror of Galadriel” Tower Grove Park, St. Louis


“The Mirror of Galadriel”

Photography by Jenny Shain
“With water from the stream Galadriel filled the basin to the brim and breathed on it, and when the water was still again, she spoke. ‘Here is the Mirror of Galadriel.’ ….She lifted up her hand and from the ring that she wore there issued a great light that illumined her alone and left all else dark.”

Tower Grove Park, 1867
The pond was designed to accomodate model sailboats, but has become popular for the picturesque “ruins” that line its northern edge. In 1867, the Lindell Hotel burned to the ground. Designer Henry Shaw saw potential “ancient ruins” in the building’s fire damaged blocks.

The Fox Theatre, built in 1927, by architect Howard Crane
“The final departure from his earlier designs were his twin Siamese Byzantine masterpieces built in St. Louis and Detroit for William Fox. When finished in 1929, reporters noted that the new Fox theatres were “awe-inspiring, fashioned after…old India, bewildering in their richness and dazzling in their appointments…striking a note that reverberated around the architectural and theatrical worlds.”

This is one of my many works of art hanging in “Cafe Ventana” near St. Louis University:
