The Writing's on the Walls 

Who could forget elementary school workbooks, where long-division problems and word-association questions are spelled out visually, offering a glimpse of lessons to come and dividing our work into more easily digestible parts. The University of Missouri St. Louis' Gallery Visio (One University Boulevard) celebrates welcome week with Workbook, an ode to its titular object, recalling memories of purchasing school supplies and wrapping books with paper bags back when institutionalized education was a whole lot simpler (and less expensive). Here the space is covered in connect-the-dots and paint-by-number pieces, re-creating a giant art workbook on the gallery walls. Workbook opens with a free reception from noon to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, August 22. For more information, visit www.umsl.edu/~galvisio.
Mondays-Fridays. Starts: Aug. 22. Continues through Sept. 19, 2012
