Well-planned infrastructure requires providing more than the bare necessities. In addition to ample seating, large and staggered signs, clear pathways, access to food, and large bathrooms, travelers appreciate scenery.

Les vendanges by François Boucher

In addition to providing the founding gift for Krannert Art Museum, Ellnora D. Krannert and Herman Krannert donated many artworks, including this painting, to this institution recognized for both its collections and its activities that invite the public to learn more about other cultures and the creative process. This work by François Boucher is a model for a section of a large tapestry.
