Slowly, our community is resuming to life post-quarantine and learning to live, work, and play mid-pandemic. While businesses and organizations are creating their own reopening plans and projections for the year ahead, a few are ready to announce reopening plans for their spaces, many of which already offer a natural respite from the stress of the outside world. Here’s the latest:
- Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis will be reopening on July 9. The new – but always FREE – timed ticketing entry system will allow for social distancing measures to remain in place while you enjoy some of the cities best exhibitions, like the critically acclaimed SHELTER by Derek Fordjour. Current exhibitions will remain on view through August 23. Read more about their safety measures here, and plan your visit today.
- In addition, the CAM team has announced its fall/winter 2020–2021 exhibition program with the ninth Great Rivers Biennial featuring award winners Kahlil Robert Irving, Tim Portlock, and Rachel Youn. Also on view are two site-specific installations by Ebony G. Patterson reflecting on the garden as a recurring motif in her art. Great Rivers Biennial 2020: Kahlil Robert Irving, Tim Portlock, Rachel Youn and Ebony G. Patterson: …when the cuts erupt…the garden rings…and the warning is wailing… are on view September 11, 2020 through February 21, 2021.
- Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries 3rd annual Golf the Galleries exhibition has been rescheduled to run Friday, July 3 through Sunday, September 6, 2020. The playable, artist-designed, nine-hole mini golf installation, designed by St. Louis-area artists, architects and other creatives, will once again be situated inside the beautiful Sheldon Art Galleries space. Practices will be in place to ensure safety and social distancing measures will be met.
- The upcoming three-day Music at the Intersection Festival in Grand Center is postponed until 2021, as announced by Kranzberg Arts Foundation and the St. Louis Music Initiative. Music at the Intersection had been scheduled for Sept. 11-13, 2000; it will now take place Sept. 10-12, 2021 – and the good news is, most of the performers scheduled for this year’s event have signed on for the new date.
- While #SLSOatHome has been getting us through quarantine, Powell Hall misses you and is looking to welcome the community back for shows beginning in August. Shows like Music of the Beatles, Bowie, Motown, Jazz, and more have been rescheduled from their original Spring dates. Visit their event calendar for all the updates!
- Great news for foodies…Chef David Kirkland wants to welcome you back for dining room service at Turn! Get your biscuit flight on Friday – Saturday (and add a Bloody Mary while you’re at it). Be sure to make a reservation!
- Bulrush STL is also now taking reservations on Friday and Saturday nights for their Ozark Tasting Menu. Enjoy freshly foraged fare and cocktails – but hurry, limited spots fill quickly!
- Big Muddy Dance Company wants to welcome you back into the studio! There are limited spots remaining for their In-Studio Summer Intensive packages. Dancers can choose from all online classes or a hybrid mix of online and in-person. Register today to reserve your spot.
