IN ST. LOUIS
"Art Hill" was part of the master plan
for the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis.
At the top of this highest point in
what is today Forest Park
sits the St. Louis Art Museum,
and the famous namesake statue
of St. Louis, on horseback.
At the base of Art Hill
are the still functioning water fountains
in the Grand Basin World's Fair lake.
Inscribed into the face of our museum
are these words:
"Art Still Has Truth, Take Refuge There."
Generations of residents and visitors
have been taking refuge here ever since.
