St. Louis Field Trip_April 12th


We are in the process of planning a field trip to St. Louis to get a tour of the Pulitzer Foundation by Ando, visit the neighboring Contemporary art museum by Allied Works next door, and then the Kemper Art Museum by Fumihiko Maki, with a few other stops along the way.

We have adjusted the date to April 12th from April 5th to accommodate the AIAS event in Milwaukee the previous weekend.  The plan will be to leave early in the morning in order to get tours of these facilities in the early afternoon, with additional sites to visit later in the afternoon and/or the following day if you choose.

More details will follow shortly, including coordination of transportation, but initially, we need to ask you to fill out the attached field trip waiver and return it to us as soon as possible, and no later than this Friday.  Please complete it digitally, save as a PDF with your name, and email to your professor prior to Friday’s class so that we can turn them in to the office and have them on record.
