Description
The Saint Louis Art Museum began in 1881 as the Saint Louis School and Museum of Fine Arts, an independent entity within Washington University in St. Louis. Originally housed in a building in downtown St. Louis, the Museum moved to its current home in Forest Park after the 1904 World's Fair. The Forest Park building, begun in 1902 and completed in 1903, was initially designed by Cass Gilbert as the main building of the Palace of Fine Arts for the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition. -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Louis_Art_Museum Expansion 1977 by Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer; expansion by David Chipperfield planned 2005, executed 2010-13.
