    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.

    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.

    To Kill a Mockingbird

    Florissant Civic Center Theater

    It has been more than half a century since "To Kill a Mockingbird" was first published, but Harper Lee's story has not lost its power to captivate! Set in 1935, the play tells the story of Scout, a young girl living in the tired old town of Maycomb, Alabama, who is about to experience a summer she will never forget. Scout lives with her brother Jem and their widowed father Atticus (a respected lawyer). Atticus has been appointed to defend Tom Robinson, an African American man who has been falsely accused of raping a white woman. Through courage and compassion, Atticus seeks justice for Tom while Scout, Jem and their eccentric friend Dill find their views of the world changed by the turmoil that erupts in their community. Performances are March 17 & 18 at 7:30pm and March 19 at 2:00pm at the Florissant Civic Center Theater (Parker and Waterford Roads, Florissant, MO). Tickets may be obtained by calling 314-921-5678 or visiting https://florissantmo.thundertix.com.

    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.

    A Beautiful Planet

    St. Louis Science Center

    Filmmaker Toni Myers wrote and directed the 2002 IMAX documentary Space Station 3D, which was about the construction of the International Space Station. Fourteen years later she's returned to the space station for her new documentary, A Beautiful Planet. Using footage shot by astronauts and by cameras mounted on the station, Myers' new IMAX film offers a spectacular view of Earth. You'll see a lightning storm popping like camera flashes from under heavy clouds, the unblinking eye of a hurricane and the surreal sight of the aurora borealis from above. You'll also see the continents aglow with electricity in the dark, and the greenish-brownish haze of our atmosphere as the station races around the globe once every 92 minutes.

    Jay Lizo (Los Angeles) and Eve Maret (St. Louis)

    Duet, 3526 Washington Avenue Suite 300, St Louis, MO 63103

    On display March 17 – May 20, 2017 In the Duet gallery Los Angeles-based artist Jay Lizo’s work Microphones, 2016 stand as a mute poet, the resins mimic the form and function of the voice like sweet treacle, yet what is important about these objects cannot be put into words. Sound artist Eve Maret’s audio installation stands as a blind painting evoking memories, dreams and nightmares as a private vision. The combination of works is about unfathomable expressions, the sounds shapes and colors. This particular pairing is also about “seeing” and “recording” the way memory plays on the surface of things, in contrast from the things in front of our eyes and in our ears. The spatial relationship between these artworks play with both the sensation of sight and the mysteries of representation.

    Medardo Rosso: Experiments in Light and Form

    Pulitzer Arts Foundation | 3716 Washington Blvd

    Rather than creating heroic sculptures of figures from myth or doing a lucrative business in the monumental bronzes that were popular in the late nineteenth century, Rosso's sculptures seem to be caught emerging from bronze or wax. These almost-manifesting faces and forms are incredibly responsive to light, giving his work a fluid, ephemeral nature not often associated with sculpture.

    A Beautiful Planet

    St. Louis Science Center

    Filmmaker Toni Myers wrote and directed the 2002 IMAX documentary Space Station 3D, which was about the construction of the International Space Station. Fourteen years later she's returned to the space station for her new documentary, A Beautiful Planet. Using footage shot by astronauts and by cameras mounted on the station, Myers' new IMAX film offers a spectacular view of Earth. You'll see a lightning storm popping like camera flashes from under heavy clouds, the unblinking eye of a hurricane and the surreal sight of the aurora borealis from above. You'll also see the continents aglow with electricity in the dark, and the greenish-brownish haze of our atmosphere as the station races around the globe once every 92 minutes.

How do elected officials, political operatives, political donors and citizens maintain ethical standards despite these imperfections?

    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.

    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.

    A Beautiful Planet

    St. Louis Science Center

    Filmmaker Toni Myers wrote and directed the 2002 IMAX documentary Space Station 3D, which was about the construction of the International Space Station. Fourteen years later she's returned to the space station for her new documentary, A Beautiful Planet. Using footage shot by astronauts and by cameras mounted on the station, Myers' new IMAX film offers a spectacular view of Earth. You'll see a lightning storm popping like camera flashes from under heavy clouds, the unblinking eye of a hurricane and the surreal sight of the aurora borealis from above. You'll also see the continents aglow with electricity in the dark, and the greenish-brownish haze of our atmosphere as the station races around the globe once every 92 minutes.

    Medardo Rosso: Experiments in Light and Form

    Pulitzer Arts Foundation | 3716 Washington Blvd

    Rather than creating heroic sculptures of figures from myth or doing a lucrative business in the monumental bronzes that were popular in the late nineteenth century, Rosso's sculptures seem to be caught emerging from bronze or wax. These almost-manifesting faces and forms are incredibly responsive to light, giving his work a fluid, ephemeral nature not often associated with sculpture.

    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.
