    The Civil Rights Exhibition

    Missouri History Museum

    St. Louis' history as a wellspring of civil rights activism is deep and impressive. Dred and Harriet Scott's legal fight to be free, Mary Meachum's bold actions leading slaves to freedom across the Mississippi River, the Jefferson Bank protesters organizing to get access to better jobs, Percy Green and the daring VP Ball invaders who challenged St. Louis' powerful elite and the exclusionary nature of their private party — all of these people fought the good fight in St. Louis. #1 in Civil Rights, the new exhibition at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; www.mohistory.org) chronicles the history of the civil rights movement in the metro area through artifacts, historical photos, oral histories, art work and actors' performances. Every key moment in the black struggle for equality is covered up to the present day, with artifacts collected by the museum staff following the killing of Michael Brown and the resulting civil unrest in Ferguson playing a major role in the exhibit. #1 in Civil Rights opens on Saturday, March 11, and continues through April 15, 2018. Admission is free.

    Imagery of Chess: St. Louis Artists

    World Chess Hall of Fame

    In 1944 Marcel Duchamp, Julien Levy and Max Ernst organized The Imagery of Chess, an exhibition of chess sets reimagined by artists and performers. Their hope was that people's vision of the chess board and pieces would be expanded beyond the then-accepted options of either the classic Staunton design or the "French" set. In 2016, the World Chess Hall of Fame exhibited some of the works from the 1944 show to acknowledge the debt owed to those artists for forever altering the look of chess. Imagery of Chess: St. Louis Artists is the new follow-up exhibit, which invites twenty local artists to have their way with the game pieces. Among those participating are Eugenia Alexander, who cites the Afrofuturism movement as a key influence on her work; fashion designer and Project Runway vet Michael Drummond; and Yuka Suga, a glass and metals artist who also works as a therapist. A second, simultaneous show, Pow! Capturing Superheroes, Chess & Comics, showcases more than 200 chess-themed comic books (you'd be surprised by how many super villains play chess to keep their minds sharp for optimal intricate scheming functionality). There are also superhero-themed chess boards and a comic book reading room. Both exhibitions open a free reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 23, at the World Chess Hall of Fame (4652 Maryland Avenue; www.worldchesshof.org). Imagery of Chess continues through September 14. Pow! remains up through September 17. Admission is a suggested $5 donation.$5 suggested donation

    Helene Slavin: Paracosm

    Philip Slein Gallery

    Helene Slavin's abstract paintings are actually fractals — infinite patterns that repeat themselves at different scales — which she creates by throwing paint and then using an electric toothbrush to fine-tune the patterns that form. There's an organic quality to her work that becomes more apparent the longer you look at it, which makes sense; fractals appear everywhere in the natural world, from ferns to mountains. But Slavin's fractals all exist in the created world of her paintings. Hence the title of her new exhibit, Paracosm — a paracosm being a highly detailed imaginary world. This show of worlds within worlds is a fundraiser benefiting Just Moms STL and the Earth Defense Coalition. Helene Slavin: Paracosm opens with a free reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, July 6, at the Philip Slein Gallery (4735 McPherson Avenue; 314-361-2617). Paracosm remains up through August 5.

    In the Realm of Trees

    St. Louis Art Museum

    Classical Chinese artists often used trees as inspirations or the focus of their works. Trees and the natural world are the focus of the new exhibition at the Saint Louis Art Museum (1 Fine Arts Drive; www.slam.org), In the Realm of Trees, which includes photographs, paintings and decorative works that glorify the beauty found in nature. The centerpiece of the show is a set of contemporary photographs called Sacred Tree on Mount Lu, made by Beijing-based photographer Michael Cherney, which was acquired for the museum's permanent collection in 2016 and will be presented for the first time in this exhibit. In the Realm of Trees opens on Friday, March 10, and remains up through Sunday, September 3, in gallery 225. The gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday, and admission is free.

    NEW LINE THEATRE PRESENTS OUT ON BROADWAY: THE THIRD COMING

    The Marcelle Theatre

    New Line Theatre presents Out on Broadway: The Third Coming August 3-19 Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm Thursdays: Adult = $20, Student/Senior = $15, Military/Educator = $10 (with ID) Fridays & Saturdays: Adult = $25, Student/Senior = $20 New Line closes its 26th season with the third installment of a New Line classic, OUT ON BROADWAY, an original revue of musical theatre songs performed from the perspective of five gay men. Some songs will be brought back from the earlier shows, and we’ll add new songs as well. The first Out On Broadway opened in March 1996, sold out every show, and was brought back in August of that year, again selling out the run. Reviewer Mike Isaacson wrote in The Riverfront Times, “United in song and spirit, the cast and audience celebrate the fusion of a Broadway past into the home for a community’s political future.” We recorded an original cast album a few years later (available on Amazon). OUT ON BROADWAY 2000 (affectionately known as OOB2K) opened in March 2000 for yet another sold-out run. This will be the third installment in the series, an intimate evening of funny and emotional performances, with just five gay men, a piano, and no microphones. The cast of New Line’s Out On Broadway: The Third Coming includes Ken Haller, Omega Jones, Sean Michael, Keith Thompson, and Dominic Windsor. The show will be directed by Scott Miller and Mike Dowdy, with scenic and lighting design by Rob Lippert, costume design by Sarah Porter, and sound design by Benjamin Rosemann. Out on Broadway contains adult language and content.

    St. Louis Art Museum

    Classical Chinese artists often used trees as inspirations or the focus of their works. Trees and the natural world are the focus of the new exhibition at the Saint Louis Art Museum (1 Fine Arts Drive; www.slam.org), In the Realm of Trees, which includes photographs, paintings and decorative works that glorify the beauty found in nature. The centerpiece of the show is a set of contemporary photographs called Sacred Tree on Mount Lu, made by Beijing-based photographer Michael Cherney, which was acquired for the museum's permanent collection in 2016 and will be presented for the first time in this exhibit. In the Realm of Trees opens on Friday, March 10, and remains up through Sunday, September 3, in gallery 225. The gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday, and admission is free.
