Scouts or Sports?, Saint Louis Art Museum

One Fine Art Drive Forest Park, Saint Louis, MO 63110
Brothers Steven and William Ladd grew up in St. Louis, and their complex, richly crafted work references events and experiences from their childhood home, grade school, and high school. Bearing the subtitle Scouts or Sports?, this exhibition will present a group of ambitious, new works that recall two of the artists’ childhood extracurricular activities—Cub Scouts and sports—while addressing the emotional and psychological significance of these activities on the brothers’ home life.
