Interlude: Saint Louis Art Museum
I first began working at the Saint Louis Art Museum in January of 2003. Over the years, the Museum has introduced me to many great friends and has offered me a practical education beyond the scope of anything that I learned in college. At SLAM, I’ve worked as a Gallery Attendant, the Photography and Image Rights Manager, a Preparator, and as a Security Officer. I cannot imagine a more well-rounded glimpse into how Museums operate than this.
Throughout this time, I’ve made sketches and photographs that document both life at SLAM and the changes to the Museum as a part of its historic expansion. This body of work is a love letter of sorts that I’d like to share in full some day.
For now, enjoy these ten highlights and please tune-in to my Instagram account (@grayphotostl) in January for a broader view, as I plan to dedicate that month of posting to SLAM.
