After nearly a year, The Aronson Fine Arts Center at Laumeier Sculpture Park (an Arts and Education Council grantee) will be open with a new exhibition! The "Future is Present: Art and Global Change" debuts this Saturday, February 6 and features artists from around the world. ⁠

The artists assembled bring perspectives from across the planet, and they will use video, sound, virtual/augmented reality and upcycled materials to address this theme. Exhibiting artists are: Daniel Canogar (Los Angeles/Madrid), Hannah Chalew (New Orleans), Jake Chapman (London), Pete Froslie (Norman, OK), Jenny Kendler (Chicago), Van McElwee (St. Louis), Elias Sime (Addis Ababa), Calum Stirling (Glasgow) and Marina Zurkow (New York).

The Aronson Fine Arts Center, which was closed for most of 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, will re-open to visitors on a limited basis for this exhibition. For the start of the exhibition, viewing hours will be Thursdays, 12:00-5:00 p.m. and Saturdays, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. following all current building capacity limits and safety guidelines outlined by St. Louis County.⁠ You can read Laumeier's COVID-19 health and safety guidelines prior to visiting the gallery here.

Multiple public programs, many free of charge, will be presented in conjunction with this exhibition. ⁠Programs include virtual conversations with exhibition artists, family workshops, Night Outs, art making experiences for adults and more.
