Function & Ceremony: The Art of Melanesia

The Schmidt Art Center has partnered with St. Louis Lambert International Airport’s Art & Culture Program to exhibit works from our Melanesian Collection.

Function & Ceremony: The Art of Melanesia features many of our objects from Papua New Guinea, including our wave splitter, spirit board, sago and feast bowls, and a canoe prow. This exhibition was first displayed at the Schmidt in its entirety in January 2016, and reflects on the sacred and functional purposes of these objects.

Function & Ceremony: The Art of Melanesia is on exhibition at the airport’s Lambert Gallery now through September 17th.
