Fall 2019 Exhibitions Opening Reception
October 10, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Attend the free opening reception of two all-new exhibits—Michael Drummond: Being Played and A Beautiful Game—showcasing the unique connections among chess, fashion, and beauty on Thursday, October 10, 2019.
Michael Drummond: Being Played weaves a narrative about the effects of the fast fashion industry on climate change through the lens of chess-inspired creations by Saint Louis-based garment designer Michael Drummond. The exhibit showcases new designs using a variety of naturally-occurring and man-made materials, including laser-cut synthetics, clothing spun from steel, handcrafted shoes and digitally-printed accessories.
A Beautiful Game both showcases artifacts from the World Chess Hall of Fame collection—chess-inspired beauty products, photographs, posters, and advertisements—and illustrates how the sophistication and brilliance of the game have been celebrated and revered in chess and popular culture. The exhibition also highlights new, interactive artwork by chess champion and author Jennifer Shahade as well as Pinned!fashion designer Audra Noyes.
Free admission. Complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
Complimentary valet available.
A Beautiful Game is also supported by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
