Join Joan Stack, curator of art collections at SHSMO, to explore Cultural Crossroads at Together for '21 Fest! Stack will be on hand in the Center for Missouri Studies Art Gallery on Saturday, August 7, to help visitors examine the artwork, objects, and imagery associated with a wide range of people who were part of what became the state of Missouri in 1821. Works by George Caleb Bingham, Karl Bodmer, and James Otto Lewis are included, along with the Missouri Petition for Statehood, an Osage Tomahawk Pipe, and a letter book belonging to American Indian Agent John Dougherty documenting interactions between Euro-American settlers and Indigenous Missourians.
