KARE-A-VAN Hits the Road

Today was our inaugural KARE-A-VAN program. I joined Allison Taylor, Director of Educational Studies for The Mildred Lane Kemper Museum at Washington University in St. Louis, and Allison Fricke, her terrific assistant for the program. (here’s a photo of us!). We visited with residents of the Zion Corner Apartments in South St. Louis City. The subject of the two Allison’s program? George Caleb Bingham’s Daniel Boone Escorting Settlers Through the Cumberland Gap, part of the Kemper’s permanent collection. Until today, I had no idea that Bingham trained himself to be an artist by looking at art through the years and that he was also a self taught art historian!

We are interested in talking about art in the Kemper’s collection with others. So, if you know, of a group where transportation is a problem, please contact me and I’ll pull out all the stops to make certain that the KARE-A-
VAN will put their facility on our must do list!!!
