Bow Gallery at Krannert Art Museum, 2013.

With its curved outer wall and abundant natural light, the Bow Gallery is a distinctive feature of the Kinkead Pavilion, which was added to the existing building in 1988. The Bow Gallery features American and European art from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, and the decorative arts.  Highlights include Rococo and Neoclassical paintings and ceramics, eighteenth-century portraits, and nineteenth-century landscape paintings.
