I was honored to take architecture photographs at the Center for Missouri Studies Art Gallery featuring the works of Thomas Hart Benton. My painting teacher and mentor Sid Larson was a student of Benton’s, so I feel a strong connection to Benton’s work. Sid Larson also restored many of Benton’s paintings in the collection at the Center. The Center for Missouri Studies Art Gallery is located in the new State Historical Society of Missouri‘s building on Elm Street in downtown Columbia, Missouri, and is open to the public.
