Panoramas of the City

Through March 24, 2019

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 August 12, 2018, at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; www.mohistory.org). free admission

Bernie Federko: My Blue Note

Wed., Oct. 24, 7 p.m.

Bernie Federko is one of the greatest playmakers in NHL history, but his talents are mostly known only in St. Louis because he played at the same time as Wayne Gretzky. The kingpin of the St. Louis Blues from the mid-'70s to the late '80s, Federko racked up assists and made every one of his wingers better. In due time his number was retired by the team and he was elected to the NHL Hall of Fame. Now serving as part of the Blues' broadcast team, Federko has at last written the book that sheds light on how a kid from tiny Foam Lake, Saskatchewan, rose through the amateur and regional ranks to reach the Hall of Fame. Federko discusses and signs copies of My Blues Note at 7 p.m. Wednesday, October 24, at the Ethical Society of St. Louis (9001 Clayton Road, Ladue; www.left-bank.com). He's joined by his co-author, sportswriter Jeremy Rutherford. Admission for one person is $30 and includes a hardcover book. The $35 ticket is good for two people and one book. Please note that Federko will not sign any memorabilia, but he will pose for photos. $30 for one person + one copy of book/$35 for two people + one book
