For many years now I’ve been telling the story of Twain, an underrated, under-appreciated Richard Serra sculpture in Saint Louis. One of the newly expanded Saint Louis Art Museum’s first shows spotlights and celebrates Twain: Titled “Sight Lines: Richard Serra’s Drawings for Twain,” the exhibition features drawings, ‘manipulated photographs,’ and a steel model related to Twain. The exhibition was curated by Ann-Maree Walker and will remain on view through September 7. [Image: Richard Serra, photographed by Robert Pettus, Manipulated Photograph related to “Twain”, c. 1975.
