CHICAGO — The St. Louis Art Museum today will price $20.4 million of fixed-rate cultural facilities revenue bonds and will follow up as early as next week with $25 million of variable-rate debt — a year after postponing the sale amid the market turmoil of late 2008.

Proceeds from bonds, which will be issued through the museum’s affiliated foundation, will help finance a $130 million expansion plan that will increase gallery and public space by 30%, officials said.
