For several summers in the 1930’s, an Art Colony located in Ste. Genevieve conducted a Summer School of Art. Instead of painting rolling hills or flowers, the artists portrayed the human condition and Depression era events. Information about the school and some of its creations are on display at the Ste. Genevieve Welcome Center. Grave diggers, portraits, and lime kiln workers are depicted. The Summer School instructors included: Thomas Hart Benton, Fred E. Conway, Joseph James Jones, Miriam McKinnie, Joseph John Paul Meert, Jesse Beard Rickly, Aimee Goldstone Schweig, Martyl Schweig, E. Oscar Thalinger, Joseph Paul Vorst, and Matthew E. Ziegler. Another display of Art Colony works can be viewed in the stone building behind the Shaw house.
