Ladue Galleries, an antiques and decorative arts mall that opened a decade ago, will shutter for good on Monday, Jan. 31. The news comes less than one week after the closure of another local business, Busch's Grove Market, which ended its operations on Jan. 8.

Lang and his fellow honorees were recognized at a ceremony and reception recently at the Sheldon Concert Hall. School head Matthew Gould said the recognition is well-deserved.
