As you may have heard, the Gateway Arch is now 50 years old. The Saint Louis Art Museum celebrates the Arch not as monument but as art in the new exhibition St. Louis Modern: The Era of Innovative Design. Viewing Eero Saarinen's design as a massive sculpture, the show's curators place the Arch in the context of other artists' work and use it as a way to discuss the the modernist revolution in art and industrial design between 1935 and 1965. The show features pieces such as an armchair designed by Charles and Ray Eames, Victor Hugo Proetz's Bull's Eye Mirror and a 1954 Corvette by Chevrolet. St. Louis Modern is on display every day except Monday at the St. Louis Art Museum in Forest Park (314-721-0072 or www.slam.org). Admission is $6 to $14, and free on Friday.
