If you have a chance to stop by the George Caleb Bingham Gallery in the art building on the corner of Hitt and University, make sure you do so. What I really meant to say is – Plan to stop by and see the Larry Show. It runs until August 25th when they will hold a reception from 4 to 6.
Larry, the star of the show, is a model for the art department. He poses for the students to draw, paint, or sculpt him. When I was in school I had the pleasure of meeting Larry and I sketched him in my drawing class. He is such an interesting man.
I don’t want to show too much, you should experience it yourself. You’ll get a good glimse into Larry’s life. And a look at some fabulous art work. It is a collection of pieces from several artists.
The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm. You can call 573.882.3555 if you have any questions. Enjoy!
