Lola Álvarez Bravo: Picturing Mexico

Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 16

Lola Álvarez Bravo was a Mexican artist, educator and curator whose life spanned nearly the entire twentieth century. From the 1930s to the 1970s, Álvarez Bravo crisscrossed her way across the country with camera in hand, creating portraits of other working artists. Always shooting, she also made images of regular people and the architecture — both old and new — at a time when Mexico was rapidly growing and transforming. Lola Álvarez Bravo: Picturing Mexico, the new exhibition at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation (3716 Washington Boulevard; www.pulitzerarts.org), features more than 40 of her black-and-white photographs in all their glory. Picturing Mexico opens with a free reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, September 14. Also debuting the same night are more than 60 sculptures by Ruth Asawa, who often worked with wire. Both shows remain on display through February 16. The Pulitzer is open Wednesday through Saturday. free admission

Love, Linda

Sundays, 3 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Thursdays, 7:30 p.m. Continues through Jan. 27

Cole Porter was a tough man to stay married to; he liked glamorous parties, the nightlife and being the center of attention. His homosexuality could have been another dealbreaker, but not for Linda Lee Thomas. The Southern heiress had already had one rough marriage when she met Porter, and the two got along so well that they soon married. Despite their sexual incompatibility, they shared a genuine affection, and Porter had no greater champion than his loving wife. The one-woman musical Love, Linda recounts the story of Mrs. Cole Porter through jazz arrangements of her husband's most beloved songs, adapted by Stevie Holland and Gary William Friedman. Max & Louie Productions presents Love, Linda at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (January 17 to 27) at the Marcelle Theater (3310 Samuel Shepard Drive; www.maxandlouie.com). Tickets are $40 to $45. $40-$45

Christine Corday: Relative Points

Starts Jan. 18. Fri., Jan. 18, 7-9 p.m. and Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through April 21

Space is deep, to quote Hawkwind, and yet scientists believe all living creatures on Earth contain stellar elements within their genetic makeup. Artist Christine Corday explores this union of humans and the stars in her new exhibition Relative Points, which was commissioned by the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. Eleven of Corday's large sculptural forms, which are each made of more than 10,000 pounds of elemental metals and metalloid grit, will be arranged within the museum in a pattern of Corday's choosing. The sculptures, which resemble slightly squashed black marshmallows more than four feet high, are intended to be touched; they're essentially the same base elements as humans, after all. During the course of the exhibit, the shapes will change gradually from repeated contact and the inexorable force of universal gravitational attraction. You'll have your first opportunity to get close and personal with Corday's work at the opening reception, which takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, January 18, at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (3750 Washington Boulevard; www.camstl.org). Christine Corday: Relative Points remains fixed in space through April 21. free admission

Her classmates tease Wanda about her hundred dresses until one day she disappears from school. As guilt overtakes the children, they decide to find out what happened to Wanda and to make amends. Bullying, friendship and forgiveness are at the center of this play adapted from the beloved Newbery Honor Book by Eleanor Estes.
