Citygarden

Okay, so thank you New York Times for letting the world know of our dying city -


"The United States Census of 1950 reported roughly 850,000 people living in St. Louis; today the number is around 350,000."


Now besides that somber news, they did report on a new public art project that just opened up downtown. Citygarden, a 2.9-acre sculpture park features 24 works by artists including Fernand L├ęger, Tony Smith, Jim Dine and Bernar Venetworks. The park was financed by a nonprofit organization, Gateway Foundation. It cost between $25 million and $30 million, which does not include the art collection. Well, with newspaper clipping in hand James, myself, and my grandparents all went for a drive to check it out.
