A Study in Why I Love St. Louis in the Summer*

We went to CAM Night at the Contemporary Art Museum for the food truck, the dollar beers, and the 90s playlist but ended up drifting out back, away from the noise and towards the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts next door. After all, Joe hadn’t yet seen Joe (Richard Serra’s large-scale steel sculpture, built in 2000).

Joe in Joe.

In the Pulitzer, there was wine and a gorgeous semi-enclosed courtyard looking out on an infinity pool.

There was also a grassy roof, perfect for watching the sun set.

Then there was the bike ride from the Cookie Tree Mansion to the Schlafly Tap Room for the Belgian Beer & Mussels festival.

The ride was full of wonderful details, but one was worth stopping for.

Peat Wollaeger’s work can be found all over the city. It’s not only worth a look, but it’s usually looking right back at you.

*Hint: It’s not the 100+ degree humid heat

    You should turn this into a kid’s book with your bookbinding superpowers (Buchbindensuperkräfte – ein Wort auf Deutsch).
