Bob Priddy - The Art of the Missouri Capitol

In 1911 art-minded Missourians hired the nation’s leading artists to decorate the new Missouri statehouse, and the works they created were considered among the finest to adorn any state capitol. Historian Bob Priddy describes these treasures – many of which go unnoticed and unappreciated even by those who daily walk the building’s marble halls. Priddy is news director at the Missourinet, a statewide commercial radio network. Among his books are The Art of the Missouri Capitol: History in Canvas, Bronze, and Stone (with Jeffrey Ball).
