With Jenna Stout, museum archivist; Courtney June Books, assistant paintings conservator; and Amy Torbert, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation assistant curator of American art
During summer 2021 conservators at the Saint Louis Art Museum will undertake the treatment of wall and ceiling murals in Gallery 203. Painted by Elmer E. Garnsey in 1915, these architectural decorations once marked the original entrance to the Museum’s Richardson Memorial Library. Join museum archivist Jenna Stout, conservator Courtney June Books, and curator Amy Torbert for an introduction to the history of the Museum’s library, its grand paintings, and their current condition.
