WHAT’S NEW AT SLAM

Plug Like Claes Oldenburg’s Three-way plug currently on display in front of the Saint Louis Museum Of Fine Art, this is a plug  for the museum and its fine collection of fine art.

In particular, I would like to tell you about a painting that was recently bequeathed to the museum.THANKSGIVING - Norman Rockwell

“Thanksgiving”  by Norman Rockwell

I don’t know what it is about this painting, but I’ve been back to visit this work three times since it went on display in the American Art Galleries early this year.  It is a very special work, and I encourage you to visit it. And admission to the Museum is FREE TO ALL every day.

  1. Oh, wow. Had never seen this. I can see why you go back to it. I’d love to see it in person.

    • Later this year it will be joined by a second Rockwell from the same family. Actually, I learned last weekend they are endowing their entire American Collection to the museum. Also, their entire collection of Chinese artifacts. Wealthy families in Saint Louis have been very generous to the museum.
