I’ve been hearing about the City Museum in St. Louis for years. It sounds amazing and it seems like half the people I meet have been there. It seems like a giant industrial sized curio cabinet that you can run through complete with a glass tunnel through the live shark tank, a 10 story slide and a bus cantilevered off the roof. Anyway, as an anniversary gift for a couple who were married at the Museum, I was commissioned to make a piece inspired by it. There is enough material in the museum for an artist to spend a lifetime on the subject (in fact the museum was created by an artist) but I picked a few elements that are particularly striking and also commemorative of their wedding. I find it hard to believe that I have never managed to visit the Museum but, without a doubt, I will see it the next time I am in St. Louis.
