As Missourians prepare to commemorate the 200th anniversary of our statehood, historic paintings, sculptures, posters, prints, and illustrations can help us better understand our history.
Joan Stack, Ph.D. - Curator of Art Collections @The State Historical Society of Missouri explores ten artworks at institutions around Missouri that reflect the complex and powerful lessons that Missourians can learn by studying the state’s art from 1820 until the 1960s.
