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

Showcasing photographers who use 19th and early 20th century processes to comment on contemporary issues and subjects, the exhibit highlights how these antique methods of artistic expression can still have powerful validity in today's world. Despite, or perhaps because of, the readiness, ease and ubiquity of photography in the 21st century, there has been a movement of photographic artists who have turned to early processes like the tintype, ambrotype and daguerreotype to delineate their subjects, imbuing their work with a beauty and material quality not found in the photos made with social media and instant filters.

La Cage aux Folles

info@newlinetheatre.com

Come join us on the French Riviera for a night of love, laughs, illusions and truths, and the triumph of family over bullies and bigots. New Line continues its season in March 2019 with Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein's subversive comedy about real family values in a world that doesn't always value family. In its original 1983 production -- before gay marriage was legal -- the show was a safely old-fashioned musical comedy. But in its 2008 London revival and 2010 Broadway revival, the show was transformed from a genial comedy into a more serious story with lots of laughs. $10-30
