Artists of the Mississippi & Other Great American Rivers/Mississippi Movies: The Art of Henry Lewis and the Great Panoramas of the 19th Century-Opening Reception

Join us for the opening reception of ‘Artists of the Mississippi & Other Great American Rivers’, and ‘Mississippi Movies: The Art of Henry Lewis & the Great St. Louis Panoramas of the 19th Century.’

The St. Louis Mercantile Library is the premier collection of river art, artifacts and history in the United States. Its comprehensive, internationally-used collections include works by St. Louis river artists who have created a panorama of life and lore along American inland waterways for centuries. The Mercantile’s Herman T. Pott National Inland Waterways Library and the Mercantile Library Art Museum have combined collections for these two extraordinary exhibitions. This reception includes wine, light refreshments and hors d’oeuvres, and complimentary parking in West Drive Garage.

This event is free and open to the public. Both exhibitions complement the Missouri History Museum’s major exhibition Mighty Mississippi, on view now through April 18, 2021.
