Saint Louis Art Museum

In 2013 the Saint Louis Art Museum reinstalled the permanent galleries of the Ancient American collection, devoting a large gallery to Mississippian artworks. Supplementing the Museum’s collection with objects from regional institutions and private collections, the current display is one of the few in the country that features the artistic achievements of the Mississippians alongside their counterparts from other areas of the Western Hemisphere. In April, the Museum will rotate additional objects to the installation, giving special attention to flint clay figurines and ceremonial smoking pipes.
