ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The cobblestones are not gone, they are just reset. This is according to the Laclede’s Landing Neighborhood Association.

Leaders plan to celebrate the end of work on 2nd Street between Washington Avenue and Morgan Street. The $1.46-million project left behind a smoother ride for drivers used to slowing to a crawl over the historic cobblestones. But, the work was more than just a surface facelift. Workers moved underground water lines, rebuilt street bases and upgraded sidewalks,
 
Business owners said they lost customers during the work that was supposed to be done in May 2014. But, a brutal winter pushed the completion date back. Drivers also put up with closed streets and detour signs.
 
 So, neighborhood association leaders invited business owners and drivers to a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Much More Than Still Life

The Dish

In a review of The Barnes Foundation’s exhibit The World Is an Apple: The Still Lifes of Paul Cézanne, Morgan Meis considers why the painter’s still lifes provoked outrage in the late 19th century and why they endure as “so peculiar, so specifically Cézanne-ish” today:

Cézanne liked his painting surfaces rough with paint. He generally did not varnish or glaze his paintings. He also didn’t care much for “correct” perspective. Look, for instance, at The Kitchen Table (1888-90). The left corner of the table doesn’t even match up with the right corner. And the floor of the kitchen doesn’t recede properly into space. Cézanne didn’t care. He wanted the painting to look this way. He wanted you to feel – when looking at the painting – slightly off-kilter, like the canvas can’t quite hold what is inside it and the kitchen might spill forward out of its frame.
