PARTING SHOT–Spring 2009

Saarinen’s Masterpiece
The Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum is hosting the first retrospective of the work of Finnish architect Eero Saarinen. Running January 30 through April 27, 2009, “Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future” surveys more than 50 built and proposed projects. Included are full-scale building mock-ups, never-before-seen drawings, models, films, and other documentary materials. The exhibition also includes photographs, such as the one taken in 1965 of the Gateway Arch under construction. (See the next issue of the magazine, summer 2009, for a feature on the exhibit.)
