Mud to Music

A new exhibition at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) links two different forms of art to communicate culture, artistry, and the human experience. The Mud to Music exhibition displays musical instruments composed of clay and porcelain from the Sheldon Art Galleries’ Hartenberger World Music Collection.

These instruments, used in all parts of the world for thousands of years, tell the story of dynamic human experiences throughout history. Instruments on display are from a wide variety of regions, including Mexico, China and France, and range in date from 100 B.C.E. through the 1980s. The instruments also vary in type and include a clay rattle from western Mexico dating to 200 B.C.E., a 19th century porcelain horn from China, and a 20th century clay ocarina from Israel.

Mud to Music is now on display through May 5, 2019 in the Lambert Gallery near the C Concourse exit in Terminal 1 and is part of the Lambert Art & Culture Program’s temporary exhibitions program.
