For 30 years, Sarah Jean Linquist was a quiet but omnipresent artistic force in St. Louis. Her murals decorated buildings, her painted backdrops enlivened the stage of the Muny and her "landscapes" brought caves and forests and waterfalls into private homes. She was also responsible for the i ... More >>
