Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

Wikipedia Description: Saint Louis Art Museum
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Saint Louis Art Museum is one of the principal U.S. art museums, visited by up to a half million people every year. Admission is free.
Located in Forest Park in St. Louis Missouri, the museum's three-story building was built as the Palace of the Fine Arts for the 1904 World's Fair, also known as the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. Architect Cass Gilbert was inspired by the Baths of Caracalla in Rome, Italy.
In addition to the featured exhibitions, the Museum offers rotating exhibitions and installations. These include the Currents series that showcases contemporary artists, as well as regular exhibitions of textiles, new media art, and works on paper.
The Saint Louis Art Museum began as the Saint Louis School and Museum of Fine Arts, an independent entity within Washington University in St. Louis. The Museum's original building was located in downtown St. Louis. The Museum relocated to its current home in Forest Park following the 1904 World's Fair. After formally separating from Washington University in 1909, the museum was officially renamed the City Art Museum of Saint Louis, and an organizing board, that was to take control in 1912, was assigned.
During the 1950s, an auditorium was added to the main building, creating a venue for films, concerts and lectures. In 1971, because of financial constraints, the Metropolitan Zoological Park and Museum District was created, providing stable monetary support by doubling the tax rate that Halsey Cooley Ives, the first Director of the Museum, had arranged in 1908. The taxation now included the county, which precipitated the name change to the Saint Louis Art Museum.
Money from public associations and individuals has allowed the museum to expand its collection of paintings, sculptures, modern art and ancient masterpieces from different continents.
The collection of the Saint Louis Art Museum contains more than 30,000 art works from antiquity to the present. The collection is divided into eleven areas:
3. Ancient and Islamic
6. Decorative Arts and Design
7. Early European
10. Pre-Columbian and American Indian
11. Prints, Drawings, and Photographs
The modern art collection includes Matisse, Gauguin, Monet, Picasso, and Van Gogh. Its particularly good collection of 20th-century German paintings, includes one of the world's largest Max Beckmann collections. It also has Chuck Close's Keith (1970). The collections of Turkish rugs and Oceanic and Pre-Columbian pieces are among the finest in the world. The museum holds the Egyptian mummy, Amen-Nestawy-Nakht, and two mummies on loan from Washington University. It has the largest U.S.-museum collection of paintings by American painter George Caleb Bingham.
* Art classes for children, adults, and teachers. Each costs about $20-$300.
* Richardson Memorial Library, one of the largest centers for the history and documentation of art in the Midwest, holding more than 100,000 volumes and the museum's archives. Both can be searched through their online catalog.
* Resource Center, a loan collection of educational materials circulated through the Museum's nine satellite resource centers in Missouri.
* Free guided tours by trained docents for groups.
Plans to expand the museum were included in the museum's 2000 Strategic Plan and the 1995 Forest Park Master Plan. The expansion will include more than 224,000 square feet (20,800 m2) of gallery space including an underground garage within the lease lines of the property. The expansion is expected to cost $125 million, though no tax funds will be used.
In 2005, architect David Chipperfield was selected to design the expansion; Michel Desvigne has been appointed landscape architect.
On November 5, 2007, museum officials released the design plans to the public; models are on display at the museum. Construction will begin in late 2008 and be completed in 2010. The museum will remain open during construction. (See also the museum web site's expansion page.)
