Event Type: **Special Events|
Age Group(s): Adult
Start Time: All Day
This traveling exhibit from the Missouri State Archives surveys the rich history of publicly funded architecture in Missouri. From Fort Osage, which was once the U.S. military’s most westerly outpost, to the Gateway Arch, which pushed the boundaries of design and engineering, many of the state’s most significant architectural achievements have been built with public funds. Because of this, these structures often reflect our attitudes about the public good and fiscal accountability. Just as often, however, public buildings express our common dreams and aspirations. Older buildings document the ideals of past generation and help us better understand our artistic and cultural heritage.Library: K. Linnemann Branch Map
Always functional and often aesthetically pleasing, publicly funded buildings help tell the story of state and local history.
