AFTER THE GRAND OPENING…

DSCF0364Last weekend’s celebration on Art Hill wasn’t limited to the grand opening of the new East Building of the Art Museum …it was a day dedicated to all forms of art and expression from across the entire metropolitan area. The park grounds around the museum were a midway of tents and attractions.DSCF0331 And it started with the park rangers astride their noble steeds.  Guess some city dwellers have never seen a horse before?DSCF0365Almost every cultural group in the city was represented.DSCF0366Naturally, there was plenty of food and refreshment sites, too!DSCF0368

And entertainment, too … with different group performing every hour. After I had surveyed all the attractions, I decided it was time to walk down the hill …DSCF0362

and head for home.DSCF0369

Forest Park is a great place for walking … running … skating … and biking, too!

Or just staying in touch with nature!DSCF0372

And if you look closely, you’ll notice that Mother Nature also occasionally tries her hand with a little artwork.

And as I left the park, look at the crowds trying to get into it.

DSCF0374I wonder how long it will take the people of Saint Louis to get used to using roundabouts?

  1. Now you’re talking – roundabouts! We have them up here in New England absolutely everywhere.

  2. Great photos. I agree, beauty and art are everywhere if you just stop and look.

  3. I always like your park pictures. This time, the butterfly wins!

    • It was one of a group of 54 butterflies that were painted by different local artists. They where then auctioned off at a charity BUTTERFLIES HAVE LANDED affair. The proceeds benefited children with life threatening or limiting diseases.
