Ever-Changing Art 

For non-artists, the process of viewing art is fairly simple: admire the painting, step back, sigh and move on to the next one. That isn't entirely fair to art enthusiasts and artists, who take care to analyze technique and process. In an ongoing effort to further push the boundaries of the typical museum experience, the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts (3716 Washington Boulevard; 314-754-1850 or presents Art Of Its Own Making, an exhibition that brings the casual observer into the creative process. All of the work in the show interacts with the gallery space and the viewer. Edith Dekyndt's helium-filled black orb Ground Control floats in the museum space, its movements dictated by the passage of viewers. Equally exciting in its evolutionary process is Meg Webster's Moss Bed, Queen, which is a mound of moss inserted into the floor that will change over the course of the exhibition. Art Of Its Own Making opens with a free public reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, February 14. The show remains up through Wednesday, August 20, and the gallery is open Wednesday and Saturday. Admission is free.
Wednesdays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Feb. 15. Continues through Aug. 20, 2014
