ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – An architect from across the globe is in town to showcase some of his drawings of downtown St. Louis. The list did not include sketches of Busch Stadium or the Gateway Arch, but rather a side of downtown that is often overlooked.
Peter Rush made an impromptu visit to St. Louis in March, following a presentation he made at Ball State University in Indiana.

Peter is in town all month, sketching scenes of St. Louis. And the great news is that all his sketches will be for sale October 7th. The cereal box sketches measure ~12in x 20in. Others are soft pencil sketches on white paper. With time to plan for the October event, some larger works will likely be included. Timing also may allow for commissioned work on a first come, first served basis (email alex at nextstl.com for more info). Sketches are planned to start at ~$75 and reach several hundred depending on size.
