Opening nights feel different. Whether at the theater, museum or even a bookstore, you enter not only expecting, but demanding a life-changing experience. You dress up, fight crowds and pay a premium to be one of the first to experience a spiritual, political or sensory transformation. The Contemporary Art Museum (3750 Washington Boulevard; 314-535-4660 or www.contemporarystl.org
) won't disappoint your expectations, with two new exhibits being unveiled on Friday, January 23 — and you don't have to pay anything to see them. Explore Bruce Nauman's Dead Shot Dan
, designed to humor and entice with neon sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs and videos, and also discover the first ever solo museum exhibition of found-art sculptures by artist Gedi Sibony
, My Arms Are Tied Behind My Other Arms
. The opening night reception lasts from 7 to 9 p.m., with a cash bar and complimentary valet parking. Both shows remain on display Wednesday through Sunday until Sunday, April 19.
