Missouri State Museum exhibition "Missouri Made" at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport
Jefferson City, Mo. - Missouri State Parks is excited to present an exhibition titled “Missouri Made,” at the Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. The exhibition highlights the Missouri State Museum’s varied and unique collection of Missouri materials and demonstrates a wide range of artistic skills and creativity.
Exploring five themes in five cases, the objects highlight Missouri offerings from raw materials to manufactured goods to one-of-a-kind crafts. Examples of items on display include an 1870’s-era hand-carved cane, an early 1900’s stained glass sampler set from St. Louis’ own Condie Neale Glass Company and several pieces of hand-knit clothing. The exhibition explores ideas of individual creativity and mass production, and showcases examples of unexpected beauty found within Missouri’s natural resources.
“Missouri Made” will be on display from March 6 through June in The Lambert Gallery, located in Terminal 1 at the passenger pick-up area near the exit for Concourse C. It was selected by the Airport Art Advisory Committee (AAAC) as one of several exhibitions on display in 2014 as part of the Airport’s Art and Culture Program. The exhibition is sponsored in part by the St. Louis Regional Arts Commission and Missouri Arts Council.
The Missouri State Museum, which is part of Missouri State Parks, is located on the first floor of the Missouri State Capitol. For more information, contact the Museum at 573-751-2854.
