Panoramas of the City

Through March 24

In a year in which the Missouri History Museum exhibition team has given us the stories of St. Louis' greatest civil rights freedom fighters and returned us to the glory days of Route 66, it would take something truly spectacular for the museum to outdo itself — and yet somehow it's done just that. The museum's new exhibition, Panoramas of the City, is as close to time travel as you can get without involving Morlocks. The show comprises seven floor-to-ceiling size images of scenes such as Charles Lindbergh speaking to a crowd of 100,000 people on Art Hill at his "welcome home" party and a 1920 march on Olive Street by the League of Women Voters. These massive photographs are joined by props and interactive media displays that give viewers a better understanding of the historical context of each scene. More than 60 panoramas of various sizes round out the exhibit, which will be on display from September 2 to March 24, 2019, at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; www.mohistory.org). free admission

Finding Common Ground: The Photography of Oraien Catledge and Jay Stock

Starts Jan. 23. Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through March 16
phone 314-535-1999
,

The International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum is pleased to present two exhibitions presenting the photographs of Oraien Catledge and Jay Stock. Both were outsiders to the communities they engaged with. One delved almost exclusively in a single impoverished, overlooked city neighborhood examining the lives of those that lived on the margins of society. The other traveled the world creating photographic essays of the people he met and their varied customs and traditions. Together they shared a profound respect and insistent fascination for the people they photographed. Adults $10 Students, Seniors $5, Children under 5 Free
