    Route 66

    Route 66

    The History Museum

    Known as the Mother Road and the Main Street of America, Route 66 plays an important role in American history and myth. But the famous road also has a story to tell about the St. Louis area and how it has changed. In Route 66: Main Street Through St. Louis we explore the local history of this world-famous highway. Come get your kicks by learning stories about the motels, custard stands, and tourist traps that could be found along the road as it passed through St. Louis. Visitors will see a number of artifacts ranging from gas pumps to roadside signs and will even get a chance to drive the road themselves.

    Audubon

    Audubon and Beyond

    UMSL Mercantile Library

    Among those of the ornithological persuasion, the St. Louis region is of prime interest because of our natural flyways. The Mississippi River underwrites that status; it's a superhighway for migrating birds. We have another feathered fact to boast about: While the renowned birdman John James Audubon was still alive, the St. Louis Mercantile Library acquired a rare reserved copy of his masterwork, Birds of America, from his family. This is tantamount to owning a Gutenberg Bible. Celebrate it with the exhibit Audubon and Beyond: Collecting Five Centuries of Natural History at the St. Louis Mercantile Library on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus.

  • January 15 | 10:00AM - 5:00PM
    Impressions of War

    Impressions of War

    Saint Louis Art Museum

    Spanish painter and printmaker Francisco de Goya's print series known as the Disasters of War stands as one of the major achievements in the history of European art. The Disasters responded to the French occupation of Spain by Napoleon Bonaparte between 1808 and 1814. It broke ground with the intensity of its focus on war’s cruelties, yet the prints also shed light on the bravery of the Spanish people on the ground in the face of foreign occupation. Although Goya made the prints during and immediately after the war, they were not formally published until 1863, more than three decades after his death.

    Saint Louis Art Museum

    Four carefully chosen works of Japanese art, including one of the most significant treasures in the Museum's collection, will be on display in Japanese Painting & Calligraphy: Highlights from the Collection.  A pair of folding screens painted by Kaihō Yūshō in the sixteenth century are the main draw, having not been on display for seven years. Yūshō painted an ethereal landscape using ink and gold that represents the illusory nature of the material world. Japanese Painting and Calligraphy is on display Tuesday through Sunday (August 19 to February 12) in gallery 225. Admission is free.

    Havana Real

    Bullivant Gallery | 3321 Washington Blvd

    Two artists and two visions collide in an attempt to unveil Havana's mystique. Through the lens of photography and illustration, the works of Robert Bullivant and Carlos Zamora bring us closer to the lost city. A curated selection of 14 works of art conveys the exuberant decadence of Havana's architecture, the fiesta of the color, a glimpse into their baroque identity, and a reflection on the consequences of Havana's macabre dance with history.

    Two artists and two visions collide in an attempt to unveil Havana's mystique. Through the lens of photography and illustration, the works of Robert Bullivant and Carlos Zamora bring us closer to the lost city. A curated selection of 14 works of art conveys the exuberant decadence of Havana's architecture, the fiesta of the color, a glimpse into their baroque identity, and a reflection on the consequences of Havana's macabre dance with history.

    Saint Louis Art Museum | 1 Fine Arts Dr

    For centuries, the use of textile designs to promote military, political, and commemorative events has been a common practice of many different cultures.

    Impressions of War

    Saint Louis Art Museum

    Spanish painter and printmaker Francisco de Goya's print series known as the Disasters of War stands as one of the major achievements in the history of European art. The Disasters responded to the French occupation of Spain by Napoleon Bonaparte between 1808 and 1814. It broke ground with the intensity of its focus on war’s cruelties, yet the prints also shed light on the bravery of the Spanish people on the ground in the face of foreign occupation. Although Goya made the prints during and immediately after the war, they were not formally published until 1863, more than three decades after his death.

    Among those of the ornithological persuasion, the St. Louis region is of prime interest because of our natural flyways. The Mississippi River underwrites that status; it's a superhighway for migrating birds. We have another feathered fact to boast about: While the renowned birdman John James Audubon was still alive, the St. Louis Mercantile Library acquired a rare reserved copy of his masterwork, Birds of America, from his family. This is tantamount to owning a Gutenberg Bible. Celebrate it with the exhibit Audubon and Beyond: Collecting Five Centuries of Natural History at the St. Louis Mercantile Library on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus.

We have another feathered fact to boast about: While the renowned birdman John James Audubon was still alive, the St. Louis Mercantile Library acquired a rare reserved copy of his masterwork, Birds of America, from his family. This is tantamount to owning a Gutenberg Bible. Celebrate it with the exhibit Audubon and Beyond: Collecting Five Centuries of Natural History at the St. Louis Mercantile Library on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus.

    Impressions of War

    Impressions of War

    Saint Louis Art Museum

    Spanish painter and printmaker Francisco de Goya's print series known as the Disasters of War stands as one of the major achievements in the history of European art. The Disasters responded to the French occupation of Spain by Napoleon Bonaparte between 1808 and 1814. It broke ground with the intensity of its focus on war’s cruelties, yet the prints also shed light on the bravery of the Spanish people on the ground in the face of foreign occupation. Although Goya made the prints during and immediately after the war, they were not formally published until 1863, more than three decades after his death.

    Japanese Painting & Calligraphy: Highlights from the Collection

    Saint Louis Art Museum

    Four carefully chosen works of Japanese art, including one of the most significant treasures in the Museum's collection, will be on display in Japanese Painting & Calligraphy: Highlights from the Collection.  A pair of folding screens painted by Kaihō Yūshō in the sixteenth century are the main draw, having not been on display for seven years. Yūshō painted an ethereal landscape using ink and gold that represents the illusory nature of the material world. Japanese Painting and Calligraphy is on display Tuesday through Sunday (August 19 to February 12) in gallery 225. Admission is free.

    Route 66

    Known as the Mother Road and the Main Street of America, Route 66 plays an important role in American history and myth.

Come get your kicks by learning stories about the motels, custard stands, and tourist traps that could be found along the road as it passed through St. Louis.

    Audubon

    Audubon and Beyond

    UMSL Mercantile Library

    Among those of the ornithological persuasion, the St. Louis region is of prime interest because of our natural flyways. The Mississippi River underwrites that status; it's a superhighway for migrating birds. We have another feathered fact to boast about: While the renowned birdman John James Audubon was still alive, the St. Louis Mercantile Library acquired a rare reserved copy of his masterwork, Birds of America, from his family. This is tantamount to owning a Gutenberg Bible. Celebrate it with the exhibit Audubon and Beyond: Collecting Five Centuries of Natural History at the St. Louis Mercantile Library on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus.
