605 Elm Street
Columbia, MO

This exhibition presents a small portion of the hundreds of new artworks that the State Historical Society of Missouri has recently collected. As the Society celebrates its 125th birthday, this exhibition illustrates the institution’s ongoing commitment to acquire a wide variety of artworks that help to preserve the cultural heritage of the Show-Me State.

Many of these works were donated to SHSMO by artists and collectors who wanted to share these cultural treasures with future generations. The State Historical Society of Missouri is eternally grateful to these generous donors.  The exhibition includes works by Thomas Hart Benton, George Caleb Bingham, Rose O’Neill (of Kewpie fame), Sid Larson, Brian Mahieu, David Plank, and many others.

The art gallery is open Tuesday-Friday, 10 am-4:30 pm, and Saturday, 10 am - 2 pm. The gallery is closed on Sunday and Monday.
