Price: free admission
St. Louis is a town steeped in nostalgia — which is just another way of saying "fond memories." Steven and William Ladd grew up here, engaged in the standard pursuits of youth sports and Cub Scouting. Those halcyon days inspired the duo's new exhibition, Currents 111: Steven and William Ladd — Scouts or Sports? The Ladds create their multimedia pieces as a pair (teamwork, just as both sports and Scouts taught them), combining paper, fiber, pigments and metal trinkets to make their paper landscapes. Their Cardinal Nation is a familiar red field studded with holes and pleasantly tactile rosacea of metal bits that add three-dimensional depth to the work. The layers of material mimic the way memories accrete in our mind, new piled on old in a steady growth of time's passage. The show opens Friday, October 23, in gallery 250 of the Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park (314-721-0072 or www.slam.org). The exhibit remains up through Tuesday, February 14, 2016, and the museum is open Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free.
