St. Louis and New Orleans have many issues of common concern and are physically linked by the mighty Mississippi River. The River Between Us will showcase works that reflect how the lives of people in both communities have always been intertwined with the river’s role in US history.
The exhibit is the second collaboration between Laumeier and Longue Vue House and Gardens in New Orleans. Marilu Knode, Laumeier’s Executive Director said, “this is the first time the connections between our two cities have been explored through the visual arts. We’re excited to expose Laumeier and Longue Vue guests to the artists’ interpretations of the social evolution of St. Louis and New Orleans.”
The River Between Us runs from 04.13 -- 08.25.13.
