Cultural Crossroads showcases artwork, objects, and imagery associated with a wide range of people who were part of what became the state of Missouri in 1821. Explore works by George Caleb Bingham, Karl Bodmer, and James Otto Lewis, and learn more about the Show-Me State’s history by examining the Missouri Petition for Statehood, an Osage Tomahawk Pipe, and a letter book belonging to American Indian Agent John Dougherty which documents interactions between Euro-American settlers and Indigenous Missourians.
