RE: In the Shadow of the Arch
1 p.m. at CAM
Since its completion in 1965, the Gateway Arch remains the most recognizable landmark of St. Louis. The creation of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial contains a long and complex narrative in itself, and questions of its legacy bring up a history of urban decay and displacement. Hear from Rhonda Buell Schier, Chief of Museum Services and Interpretation at the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, and Michael Allen, Director and Architectural Historian of the Preservation Research Office. Admission is free, but please register here.
