Sweet Home St. Louis

 

This summer, the Contemporary Art Museum is celebrating St. Louis’ rich artistic culture with Homegrown Summer, a series of events, programs and art exhibits featuring artists who, at some point or another, have called this city home. Three August events caught our eye, so don’t wait to check them out.

Contemporary Night Out (Aug. 2, 6-9pm) begins at Kemper Art Museum at Wash U, travels to CAM, then moves to the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts. Curators give talks at each stop on understanding and appreciating modern art, with Emily Rauh Pulitzer as the speaker at the Pulitzer. Concrete Cinema (Aug. 9, 8pm) is Andrew Lampert’s projector performance about the future of homo sapiens, and Serena Perrone, the St. Louis native featured in The Front Room (through Aug. 12), blurs the lines between fact and fiction with labor-intensive printmaking that involves a mash-up of painting, woodcut, drawing, silkscreen and intaglio.
