Save the Shanley Building: A Preservation Demonstration | May 11, 2019

Join us for an important day of action to show support for saving the Harris Armstrong-designed Shanley Building in Clayton. Among the earliest International-Style buildings in St. Louis, and listed in the National Register of Historic Places since the early 1980’s, the Shanley building is currently threatened with demolition as part of a new large scale development in downtown Clayton

We will begin at 10 a.m. at the St. Louis Artists’ Guild (12 Jackson Ave) with an informative presentation by noted local Harris Armstrong expert and historian, Andrew Raimist. Immediately following, we will procede to the Shanley building to demonstrate opposition to demotlion. MAKE A SIGN, BANNER, OR WHATEVER YOU LIKE TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT AND LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD! Bring your friends! We have won preservation battles in the past by speaking out and letting others know that we care about the history of the built environment in St. Louis and THIS PLACE MATTERS

This event is free and open to the public, so please spread the word!
