East St. Louis Action Research Project
When landscape architects collaborate to reconceptualize community space, they not only collect information on usage, demographics, historically important features, environmental considerations, economic constraints, and goals but also engage with residents to ensure their needs will be met. At various points in the process plans are shared so that they can be refined or reimagined to better serve everyone.
Les vendanges by François Boucher
In addition to providing the founding gift for Krannert Art Museum, Ellnora D. Krannert and Herman Krannert donated many artworks, including this painting, to this institution recognized for both its collections and its activities that invite the public to learn more about other cultures and the creative process. This work by François Boucher is a model for a section of a large tapestry.
