Missouri Cultural History


From the ragtime of Scott Joplin and the jazz of Count Basie and Charlie Parker, to the paintings of George Caleb Bingham and Thomas Hart Benton, Missourians have contributed significantly to American art.  The folk trio Barton, Para & Fraser (Fraser who is retired from the Missouri Department of Conservation) present the works of these and other great Missouri artists in slides, songs, stories, and instrumental music.
