Saint Louis Art Museum says
On Friday, April 8, join us in the Farrell Auditorium as historian Dr. Thomas J. Farnham, Textile Museum Trustee and Charles Grant Ellis Archives Research Associate and professor emeritus at the Connecticut State University System, gives an insider's look at James F. Ballard, the intriguing connoisseur behind the carpets. A prominent St. Louis businessman of his time, Ballard ranks amongst the world’s great carpet collectors. However, in terms of his personal life, the factors that motivated him to collect, and his methods of collecting, he stands alone.
