Saint Louis Art Museum
Gallery You Are The Viewer Sculptors At Work Compare & Contrast See For Yourself
In Spring 2003, St. Louis arts patron Judith Aronson proposed supporting a collaboration between the Saint Louis Art Museum and Laumeier Sculpture Park. See for Yourself: Sculpture is the result of this joint venture. It has been created to provide middle-school students and teachers with interactive learning experiences about sculpture and an introduction to select works of art from the collections of the collaborating institutions.

“See For Yourself: Sculpture” was conceived, managed and written by a team of St. Louis-based professionals. Saint Louis Art Museum staff who worked on the project included William Appleton, Assistant Director for Public Programs and Education; Louise Cameron, Head of Interpretation; and Robin Clark, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art. Laumeier Sculpture Park project staff included Clara Coleman, Curator of Collections; Jennifer Duncan, Director of Communications and Public Programs; and Karen Mullen, Curator of Education. Dr. E. Louis Lankford, Des Lee Foundation Endowed Professor in Art Education at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, provided important input. The project was produced by Schwartz & Associates Creative, with a leadership role played by Bettie Schwartz, Partner.

“See For Yourself: Sculpture” debuted to the public in Fall 2005. We express our thanks to the Aronson Foundation, Judith Aronson representing, to the Regional Arts Commission and the Employee’s Community Fund of Boeing St Louis for additional funding, and to the institutions’ directors for supporting this initiative.
