World Chess Hall of Fame
4652 Maryland Avenue
St. Louis, MO 63108
Co-Presented with the Academy of Science - St. Louis
Artist Bill Smith leads a tour of his World Chess Hall of Fame exhibition Beyond the Humanities.
In the exhibit, Smith weaves together seemingly unrelated subject matter – sculpture, biomathematics, video, physics, fractal geometry, diesel mechanics – to create artworks that highlight how the natural world interacts around us. Lunch follows the tour, and during this time participants have the chance to ask the artist about his background, work, and inspiration. Smith lives and works in southern Illinois and is represented by P.P.O.W Gallery, New York. He received a certificate in mechanics from Ranken Technical Institute, a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology and Chemistry from Southern Illinois University, and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Sculpture from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana.
Free and open to all. Registration is required. Space is limited to 20 people. Lunch is provided. For more information, or to register, CLICK HERE, or call 314.533.8586.
