St. Louis Si ghtseeing (cont.)



Soulard
Just five minutes south of the Arch, experience the world-famous St. Louis Blues in Soulard – the
neighborhood known across the country for offering America’s greatest roots music. Today,
structures built by early brewery workers have been turned into music clubs, shops and restaurants,
many of which offer outdoor dining in elaborate courtyards. The historic churches of Soulard, built by
St. Louis’ immigrant communities, also welcome visitors throughout the year. The Soulard
neighborhood marks its French heritage with a Bastille Day celebration each July and a huge annual
Mardi Gras fête. Revelers also flock to the neighborhood in the fall for Oktoberfest. Soulard Farmers
Market, operating continuously since 1779, is the neighborhood’s centerpiece, open Wednesdays
through Saturdays. - www.soulardthecity.com

Lafayette Squa re
Lafayette Square is St. Louis' oldest historic district that surrounds a 30-acre park. Lafayette Square
features delightful restaurants, art galleries, antiques, Bed & Breakfasts, flowers, gifts, professional
services, and historic homes. – www.lafayettesqure.org


The Hill
To many St. Louisans, the Hill is an Italian neighborhood known for its nationally acclaimed
restaurants, specialty groceries and bakeries, tiny "shotgun" houses and fire hydrants proudly
painted red, white and green, the colors of the Italian flag. While the Hill retains its historical ethnic
character it welcomes newcomers and visitors as a vital part of its continuity. As Hill residents know,
you don't have to be Italian to appreciate the enduring community that their parents and grandparents
created here. - www.shopthehill.com

New Media Series: Saskia Olde Wolbers, “Placebo”
August 1-October 26, 2008 (FREE)

Presented by Saint Louis Art Museum

(314) 721-0072
General Audiences

                         Saskia Olde Wolbers creates films in which
                         her hand-built environments become the
                         primary vehicles for expression. “Placebo”
                         is loosely based on the life of a man who
                         spent 18 years pretending to be a doctor. In
                         Wolbers’ reimagining of the story, an
                         unnamed and unseen narrator wakes in a
                         hospital bed after being in a car crash with
her lover, Jean. The narrator’s voice reveals that Jean—whom she
had believed to be a doctor with a family—was neither a husband
nor a physician. Rather than face his false identity, he attempted to
kill them both in the crash. Liquid slips, bubbles and pops over the
hospital walls’ wiry frames as the narrator’s mind becomes fused
with the site of her unfolding narrative.

                          These three emerging artists all work in the
                          figurative narrative painting style that
                          hovers somewhere between realism and
                          surrealism. William LaChance uses real and
                          imagined spaces to weave his images. Jesse
                          Thomas shows us dream worlds that depict
                          new ways of representation using a
                          juxtaposition of pop imagery, fantasy and
references to art history. Ian Weaver’s vision incorporates
installation and painting in which he opposes memory and
sentimentality with the harshness of documentation and bleak
cityscapes.

Persuasive Politics: Presidential Campaign Memorabilia

                    Centuries of presidential memorabilia are
                    contained in this impressive collection of
                    presidential memorabilia. A George Washington
                    coat button; an “I Like Ike” cigarette pack; an
                    1860 Abraham Lincoln campaign coin; and an “LBJ
                    For the USA” plastic hat are among the over 200
                    campaign items ranging from the historic and
                    stoic to the contemporary and whimsical. In 2007,
                    Cecelia and U.I. “Chick” Harris graciously donated
this part of their extensive collection of presidential campaign
memorabilia to the Saint Louis University Museum of Art. The sole

restriction was that the collection be available to the metropolitan
St. Louis community during a presidential election year. It is meant
first to encourage participation in the political life of the nation and
to encourage interest in history and the remarkable imagination of
the American people.


Dan Flavin: Constructed Light

                      The focus of this exhibition is the experience of
                      Dan Flavin's work - sculptural installations
                      composed of mass-produced light fixtures and
                      fluorescent tubes - within the architecture and
                      shifting natural light of the Pulitzer building.
                      Flavin's art work extends beyond the physical
                      hardware to encompass the surrounding space it
                      illuminates. As a result, his art is inseparable from
                      the architecture in which it is presented, an effect
                      that is especially powerful within the Pulitzer
                      building.
