Audubon and Beyond

Mondays-Thursdays, 7:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Continues through June 15
,

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 (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-7240 or www.umsl.edu/mercantile). The extensive exhibit incorporates sections relating to not only birds but also reptiles, mammals, fish, insects, humans, astronomy, geology, meteorology and more. Audubon and Beyond is open 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday (November 9 through June 2017). Admission is free. free admission

Steinberg Skating Rink

Mondays-Thursdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Continues through Feb. 23
,

You could do worse things in your life than learn to ice skate. It's great exercise, sure, but skating's real value is that it's a solitary pursuit that gives you time to think. Once you become proficient you can turn your brain off and glide along it's the cheapest re-set button available. The restorative powers are even greater if you can do it outdoors, and that's exactly where Steinberg Skating Rink (400 Jefferson Drive; www.steinbergskatingrink.com) is located. The city's largest rink is a great place to stretch your legs, get some fresh air and realign your system, especially during the stressful holiday season. Steinberg is open from 10 a.m. to midnight December 16 to January 7 so you can burn off some steam late into the evening. Regular hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday through February 23. Admission is $7 for an all-day pass, and skate rental is $6 for hockey or figure skates. $7 admission, $6 skate rental

Capturing the City: Photographs from the Streets of St. Louis, 1900-1930

Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Tuesdays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Continues through March 12

St. Louis was booming in the early twentieth century, growing beyond its frontier boundaries at a rapid rate. The St. Louis Street Department documented these growing pains, both to record the challenges it faced and show how much work was being done. Charles Clement Holt marshaled a force of photographers to shoot street work in progress, dilapidated areas needing improvement, finished municipal projects and -- quite by chance -- the daily life of a burgeoning city. At its peak, the project knocked out 6,000 photographs a year. Many of these were eventually thrown out, but a historian rescued some 300 prime images. A selection of these images comprise the exhibition Capturing the City: Photographs from the Streets of St. Louis, 1900-1930. These images show a St. Louis that is familiar but vastly different: Horses being hoisted out of holes in the street are a rarity these days, and Market Street never has musicians on flatbed trucks anymore urging us to keep the city clean. free admission
