Mastering the Art 

Older paint, newer digs

Beginning Friday, October 24, the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts (3716 Washington Boulevard; 314-754-1850 or will brighten up Grand Center in a whole new way. The art museum has turned the lights off on its glowing Dan Flavin exhibition to open Ideal (Dis-) Placements: Old Masters at the Pulitzer, an exhibition of paintings and drawings by fourteenth- to eighteenth-century artists, including Michelangelo (not the turtle), Pontormo, Giovanni Battista Caracciolo (that's his The Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian pictured) and more. This exhibit juxtaposes these classic works with the austere concrete of the museum's modern interior in order to provide refreshing views of both art and architecture. To further the old-school vibe, most works will be viewed only under natural light. The free opening reception for Ideal (Dis-) Placements runs from 5 to 9 p.m., and the show remains on view Wednesday and Saturday through Saturday, June 20.
Fri., Oct. 24; Wednesdays, Saturdays. Starts: Oct. 24. Continues through June 20, 2008
