Art Museum highlights

Twenty-one new galleries, 230 works of art.

The new East Building of the St. Louis Art Museum will offer art lovers a fresh look at some of contemporary art’s best works. Some pieces, such as Tony Smith’s “Free Ride,” have been locked in storage for decades; others, such as Donald Judd’s “Untitled,” have been on view, but never side-by-side with their acclaimed contemporaries. 

Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol — all of the big names of modern art are represented. So are today’s hottest artists — Gerhard Richter, Kiki Smith, Kerry James Marshall and St. Louis’ own Tom Friedman.

Here, Simon Kelly, curator of modern and contemporary art, and Tricia Paik, assistant curator of modern and contemporary art, highlight of the most intriguing works featured in the new permanent exhibition space “A New View: Contemporary Galleries” and “Postwar German Art in the Collection,” the first exhibit in the East Building’s special exhibition
