Join us at the opening reception for Painted Pieces: Art Chess from Purling London, The Staunton Standard: Evolution of the Modern Chess Set and The Sinquefield Effect: The Resurgence of American Chess.

Painted Pieces features traditional Staunton chess sets transformed by celebrated contemporary artists into one-of-a-kind, hand-painted works.

The Staunton Standard includes a spectacular array of Staunton and Staunton-style chessmen, which were first introduced to the public in September of 1849 and are still the international standard for tournament play.

The Sinquefield Effect celebrates the tenth anniversary of the Saint Louis Chess Club and the rapid resurgence of chess in the U.S.

Complimentary hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, beer, and wine are available. Patrons can also experience and play chess in virtual reality!

This is a free event, but RVSP’s are encouraged. Please email events@worldchesshof.org or call (314) 367-9243.
