Wet Your Appetite 

Not only is water extremely satisfying on a sweltering summer’s day and essential for life on any planet, it also happens to be the theme for the new exhibition at the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts (3716 Washington Boulevard; 314-754-1850 or www.pulitzerarts.org). Water, the show, opens with a free public reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, July 20, and features contemporary and modern artwork that explores the role of water in the human experience. Paired pieces by Henri Matisse and Richard Tuttle feature water as a decorative, contemplative element; works by Roy Lichtenstein and Cy Twombly explore the seductive danger of drowning. And lurking at the center of the exhibition is the stark serenity of the Pulitzer’s watercourt, a constant presence in all of our lives. Gallery hours are from noon to 5 p.m. on Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday; Water remains open through Saturday, January 5, so there is plenty of time to drink up.
Fri., July 20; Wednesdays, Saturdays. Starts: July 20. Continues through Jan. 5, 2007
