In 2009, Laumeier partnered with Lighthouse for the Blind-St. Louis to develop a series of bronze maquettes (cast scale models) for several artworks in the Permanent Collection, including a topographic orientation map of the Park, to help visitors with sight impairments navigate and enjoy the outdoor artworks.
Each maquette is sited atop a concrete and aluminum base that provides interpretive text panels in both printed English and Braille. The design of the maquette bases, the Braille description and the maquettes themselves all provide a conducive and engaging experience for visitors who are visually impaired. The maquettes are cast by local artist and educator Thad Duhigg.
Laumeier’s bronze maquette program began in 1991 with assistance from Citicorp and the National Endowment for the Arts, which produced the first 12 maquettes. The current program includes the redesign of existing maquettes to meet national standards and the creation of 20 new maquettes.
Bronze maquettes installed throughout the Park include:
