Bradley has spent half a century immortalizing and updating treasures of St. Louis landmarks in the vibrant pigments of watercolor. This collection of local scenes, beautifully captured in paint, documents the pleasures of the good life in St. Louis: the applause of a good play, the sounds of music, the satisfaction of a gourmet meal, the cheers of a crowd at a sporting event, and the beauty of St. Louis’ unique architecture. This program is free with a limited number of seats. Reservations must be made in advance through Eventbrite, by calling the museum at 314-421-4689, or by emailing About the Author: Marilynne Bradley's curiosity about the world around her is reflected in her paintings.

She has had over 150 one-person exhibits and received over 50 awar
