Museum Monday: art inspired by Lambert –St. Louis International Airport

On StuckatTheAirport.com, I often make note of an inspiring museum-quality exhibition that has made its way to an airport.

Today, I’m pleased to point you to a museum exhibition that has been inspired by an airport.

Ian Monroe's Arc

 

The Saint Louis Art Museum is showing an exhibition of work by Ian Monroe that takes its cue from the architecture and history of Lambert-St. Louis International Airport terminal.  The building was designed by architect Minoru Yamasaki, who designed the World Trade Center and the Twin Towers.
