The Sheldon: 100 Moments-A Celebration of the 100th Anniversary


With essays by Carol S. Porter, Dr. John A. Wright, Sr. and Robert W. Duffy


Photographs by Ray Marklin, Odell Mitchell, Jr., Kathleen M. Sanker and Jennifer Silverberg



100 Moments celebrates the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Sheldon Concert Hall in 1912, with three essays by Carol S. Porter, Dr. John A. Wright, Sr., and Robert W. Duffy that tell the story of The Sheldon's history. The essays are accompanied by the work of four photographers, Ray Marklin, Odell Mitchell, Jr., Kathleen Sanker and Jennifer Silverberg, who were commissioned to each create a body of work in and around the historic building. Each photographer presents a portfolio of 25 moments, recorded during The Sheldon's 2011-2012 season. The photographers have each used their keen storytelling abilities to render concerts, art exhibits, opening and lectures, educational concerts and art workshops, board meetings, weddings, corporate rentals, recording sessions, community events and fundraisers for fellow not-for-profits, dance and children's theater productions, creating a wonderful snapshot of what The Sheldon is, does, and means today. Together, the essays and photographs pay tribute to The Sheldon's layered history, but also underscore The Sheldon's position as a dynamic thriving contemporary space at the center of the St. Louis community.

Ralston Crawford and Jazz


By The Sheldon Art Galleries, St. Louis
Published by the Sheldon Art Galleries and Virginia Publishing, St. Louis, 2011

Through nearly 150 photographs, paintings, prints, drawings and film stills, the vibrant world of post-World War II New Orleans is illuminated by artist Ralston Crawford. Though often remembered for his pre-war Precisionist paintings of urban and industrial subjects, Crawford produced a significant body of work after 1949 inspired by the Crescent City and its trademark sound –jazz! Crawford synthesizes the tones and textures, rhythm and syncopation of this uniquely American art form into an acclaimed body of work that celebrates the sights, sounds and emotions of New Orleans!
