at St. Louis Art Museum
Special docent-led tour will highlight works by Jewish artists
Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ Young Professionals Division (YPD) is hosting a docent-led tour of the new contemporary wing at the St. Louis Art Museum (SLAM) on Sunday, August 11 at 1:30 pm. The one-hour tour of the new East Building will highlight the multiple works by Jewish artists in the new galleries. Admission to SLAM and the tour are free.
SLAM’s 200,000-square-foot expansion, designed by internationally renowned British architect David Chipperfield, opened to the public June 29, increasing the 109-year-old Missouri institution’s gallery space by a third. It features 21 new galleries with approximately 250 works from 20th and 21st century artists, including Pollock, Rothko and Warhol. In addition to the permanent installation, the wing is currently hosting a special exhibition, “Postwar German Art in the Collection.”
After the tour, YPDers will gather in the SLAM Café to talk art and get to know each another.
This event is limited to 25 people. To reserve a spot on the tour, email Ronnie Marshall at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, August 9.
