Type Hike: Arch

Fri., Feb. 22, 6-9:30 p.m.
,

You're a St. Louisan, so you're familiar with the blend of awe and pride inspired by the Gateway Arch. It's a monument to westward expansion and the creation of America, sure, but it's ours. Last year the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial became the country's 60th national park. On the one-year anniversary of the declaration that made it official, Type Hike, a group that supports the outdoors through typography, presents Arch, a show and sale of 60 art-driven posters that depict our big shiny baby. They will be on display from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Friday, February 22, at Brennan's Work & Leisure (3015 Locust Street; www.typehike.com/arch). Admission is free, and proceeds from poster sales benefit the Gateway Arch Park Foundation. Afterward, some posters will be on display at the Arch through March 24. free admission

Transluminate

Thu., Feb. 21, 7 p.m., Fri., Feb. 22, 7 p.m. and Sat., Feb. 23, 4:30 & 8 p.m.
,

The impressive growth of the St. Louis theater scene has allowed a greater number and variety of voices to tell their own stories. The Q Collective, a group dedicated to presenting works by and about transgender, agender and genderfluid people, opens its second season with its inaugural Transluminate Festival. Transluminate features five short plays by local playwrights Charlie Meyers, Elon Ptah and J.D. Charles. Charles' "Miss Arkansas" is about a transgender woman entering a beauty pageant, an act that infuriates another competitor. "Homebody," by Ptah, shows how a black trans guy named Malcolm moves from self-loathing to self-love, while Meyers' "Breanna" explores the relationship between Andy and Breanna, two former humans now living in android bodies in a futuristic, post-human society. Transluminate is performed at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday and at 4:30 and 8 p.m. Saturday (February 21 to 23) at the Chapel (6238 Alexander Drive; theqcollective.theater). Tickets are $10 to $20. $10-$20

Steinberg Skating Rink

Fridays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-11 p.m. and Mondays-Thursdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Continues through Feb. 25

Ice skating and hot cocoa go together like Christmas and carols. Every year, Steinberg Skating Rink in Forest Park (www.steinbergskatingrink.com) is open from early November to late February, providing the Midwest's largest outdoor rink for the low price of $7 a day. Your $7 is good for the whole day, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Skate rental is another $7, which is a steal — but just because it's so affordable doesn't mean you have to bring the family. If you're tired of the in-laws, their kids or just want to get out of the house, Steinberg is there for you. Nothing clears the head like a brisk skating session and hot cocoa by an outdoor fire. $7

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

Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches

Starts Feb. 22. Sundays, 2 p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays, 7 p.m. Continues through March 3
,

Tony Kushner's monumental drama Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches refracts the early days of the AIDS crisis through the prism of politics, religion, sex, the Red Scare, drugs and Antarctica. All of the characters and places are created by a smallish cast that must play young and old, dying and dead, and fantasy and reality. At the heart of all of this is a series of love stories that smash into the cold philosophy of its 1980s setting. "It's everyone for themselves" is a horrible way to live and a worse way to die. The Washington University Performing Arts Department presents Millennium Approaches at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (February 22 to March 3) at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; www.edison.wustl.edu). Tickets are $15 to $20. $15-$20

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

This exhibit showcases the talents of students from Wentzville School District High Schools who, in their curriculum, study the expression of identity. Humanity shares a common characteristic–the desire to be recognized by others. One common way we gain recognition is through the individual pursuit of originality. The works in the exhibition aim to convey a sense of how we identify, justly or not, one another's individuality based on the experiences of living in a diverse society. Free
