As work on the new wing of the Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park (314-721-0072 or www.slam.org) nears completion, art that's long been in storage reemerges for public viewing. The first sighting of these archived works is Mantegna to Man Ray: Six Explorations in Prints, Drawings and Photographs, which debuts in the two new galleries of the Main Building. Mantegna to Man Ray is a celebration of this often overlooked media and features works pulled from the museum's archive of more than 14,000 works on paper, with a special emphasis on Max Beckmann, Pieter Bruegel and Midwestern favorite George Caleb Bingham. Other points of interest include prints by all-time favorite Rembrandt van Rijn (no joke -- his drawings and prints are lusciously detailed and impeccably crafted), Italian Renaissance artist Andrea Mantegna, pastels of poor child ballerinas from Edgar Degas and a solarized photograph, Iris, from the freaky Modernist game changer Man Ray. Mantegna to Man Ray is open in galleries 234 and 235 through Sunday, October 27. The museum is open every day except Monday, and admission is free.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: April 26. Continues through Oct. 27, 2013
