Have you ever had the experience of seeing a fabled piece of art in a museum, only to be let down by its small size? The gosh-darn Mona Lisa may be the world's most famous painting, but it's only about 20 by 30 inches; certain take-out menus are larger. If you like your art big and bold, you'll want to be at the opening reception for Screwed Again,an exercise in mural painting that takes over the gallery of the Regional Arts Commission (6128 Delmar Boulevard; 314-836-5811 or — the entire gallery. For the installation, nine artists (including Christopher Burch, Stan Chisholm and Justin Tolentino) have covered the RAC's walls with sheets of wood and paper and are collaboratively transforming it into a room-filling painting. Don't expect a graffiti-like explosion of bright colors, though: The artists have chosen to paint only in shades of white, black and gray. The free reception begins at 6 p.m. Friday, August 13, and features the deft turntable work of DJ Needles. Screwed Again remains on display daily through Sunday, October 3.
