"An Evening with Emil Frei Studio"

THE SAINT LOUIS Chapter of the American Institute of Architects is hosting a continuing education seminar, "An Evening with Emil Frei Studio", on Wednesday, September 2nd, 6:30 p.m., at the Steinberg Auditorium, Washington University. Cost is $20 for AIA members, $40 for all others. Call the AIA for more details.

The firm of Emil Frei is famed for its stained glass and mosaics, and many Saint Louis area churches have Frei artwork.

As the Church rediscovers its liturgical magnificence, firms like Frei ought to be getting much more business in the future.

Local churches which include Frei art include: Saint Cecilia, Saint Anselm, Saint Francis Xavier, Saint Margaret of Scotland, Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows, Saint Anthony of Padua, Saint Elizabeth, Saint Francis de Sales, Our Lady of Lourdes, Saint Peter in Kirkwood, and many others.
