*Thomas Hart Benton Traveling Art Exhibit

Faculty from Valle Catholic Schools recently brought a Thomas Hart Benton traveling art exhibit to the DuBourg Centre. Mrs. Jennifer Linderer, Mr. William Palmer, Mrs. Linda Trimmer, and Mr. Davis Grigaitis coordinated the event. The display will be part of the Fourth Friday Art Walk in Ste. Genevieve on Friday, March 23rd.

Students added to the display by creating their own works of art inspired by the Missouri artist after doing research into his style.

Thomas Hart Benton’s paintings are famous for showing ordinary people doing common things. He drew and painted portraits, landscapes, and scenes of people at work in farms, factories, and busy cities. His best-known works are public murals, particularly those in Missouri’s Capitol in Jefferson City.
