A STUNNING MUSEUM,
INSIDE AND OUT
The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis
is located in the heart of a rebounding section
of an older part of original mid town.
Grand old buildings carefully restored,
including the fabulous Fox Theater,
are attracting new galleries and museums.
The Contemporary Art Museum is a crown jewel
and a notable part of the new construction.
Designed by noted architect Brad Cloepfil
from Portland, Oregon,
this striking museum is as interesting to view
on the outside as the galleries within.
Gravel gardens and dramatic sculpture
make inner courtyards a breathtaking escape,
with walkways and glass walls that play
with shadows and sunlight.
What a joy to photograph!
