“Now, you’re either on the bus or off the bus.” – Ken Kesey
How would you like to take a tour of some of St. Louis’ best mid-century modern residential, commercial and spiritual buildings? You can just sit back and leave the driving to Modern StL on October 8, 2011, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
$25 puts you on a bus with either Michael Allen or myself as your tour guide, along with other ModernSTL board members sharing their areas of expertise. It begins at 9 a.m. with a tour of the Ethical Society hosted by architect and Harris Armstrong scholar Andrew Raimist. It ends at 1 p.m. with a narrated tour of Priory Chapel. Between, we cruise through Downtown & Mid-Town St. Louis and some finer residential mid-century modern. Details are still being ironed out, but it’s guaranteed that you will learn, laugh and love the architectural gems of St. Louis even more than before!
ModernSTL was asked by DOCOMOMO to be a part of this nationwide, weekend event celebrating the Modern Movement. The American mid-century modernist symbol is on our river front, so we’re thrilled to finally have St. Louis represented in this 5th annual Tour Day.
There is a limit of 100 seats, and reservations are required. So if you’re on the bus, you gotta hurry, and I hope to see you bright and early on Saturday, October 8th. You could bring donuts, that’d be cool…special events andrew raimist, DOCOMOMO Tour Day 2011, Ethical Society, Michaell Allen, modernstl, toby weiss

“Now, you’re either on the bus or off the bus.” So, I’m guessing this is going to be one hell of a trip. Is it Bring Your Own Acid?
