Panel Discussion: The Legacy of German Art and Culture in St. Louis


This panel, organized in conjunction with exhibitions of modern and contemporary German art at the Saint Louis Art Museum and at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, explores the history of exhibiting and collecting German art and culture in St. Louis. From the early influence of seminal figures such as the nineteenth-century beer magnate Adolphus Busch, to the elaborate presentation of German art and culture at the 1904 World's Fair and the impact of significant collectors such as Morton D. May on the institutional legacy of German art, to major acquisitions and exhibitions of postwar German art, panelists will discuss why German art and culture is so appealing to St. Louis.Please join us for light refreshments in the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum atrium following the panel discussion.This panel discussion is sponsored in part by the St. Louis Eric M. Warburg Chapter of the American Council on Germany.
