Senior citizens interested in attending my lecture at OASIS about influential architects who have left their marks on St. Louis can sign up for a two-week class on June 12th and 19th, 2019, by clicking here and searching for class number “802” or by my last name. It will be held at the beautiful new Lemay Pavilion in Jefferson Barracks.
