2018 Fall Exhibitions Opening Reception

Join us for the opening reception of two brand-new exhibitions, “Harry Benson: Kings & Queens” and “Universal Turf: Peter Manion.” Enjoy complimentary cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and more. Free admission.

About the Exhibitions

“Harry Benson: Kings & Queens” is a photography exhibit spanning the 60+ year career of world-renowned photojournalist Harry Benson CBE. Images include chess players and cultural icons such as Robert “Bobby” Fischer, Fabiano Caruana, Hikaru Nakamura, Magnus Carlsen, celebrities, American presidents, and British royalty, in addition to newly-commissioned photography from the 2018 Sinquefield Cup.

“Universal Turf: Peter Manion” is a mixed media installation of never-before-seen works by Saint Louis-based artist Peter Manion that explores social and interpersonal parallels between chess and humanity. Manion’s plaster-coated panels of dyed felt create an interactive environment in which visitors are encouraged to interact with parts of the installation.
