This weekend with temperatures expected to top 100 degrees I highly suggest finding indoor activities, unless of course face melting heat is your thing.  Here’s a rundown of some of the great art exhibits going on around St. Louis this weekend.

Mad Art Gallery in Soulard:  This weekend is your last chance to check out Heavy Hitters, a collaborative exhibit of 30 street and graffiti artists.  This former police station is an awesome place to check out art and the jail cells that are still there.

Phantom Art Gallery downtown: Now showing Shots in the Dark, a photo exhibit featuring photos by Milton Weiser, The Chicago Tribune and the St. Louis Globe Democrat, among others.  This gallery also has a library with some really good looking books.

The Sheldon Art Galleries in Grand Center: There are always so may exhibits going on here, and right now is no exception.  Among my favorites are: The Beat Goes On-instruments from the Hartenberger World Music Collection, Made in the Shade-Paul Rudoph’s Florida houses and Art by Children of Artists.

The Bruno David Gallery in Grand Center: Currently on Display is Hidden in Plain Sight, a collection by Bunny Burson.  It was inspired by her grandparents’ letters to her mother written in Germany between 1939 and 1941.

The PHD Gallery on Cherokee Street:  Miami Centerfold by Keith Mosier is a collection of prints featuring Miami architecture. These photographs are simply stunning. The exhibit opens on June 30th and based on what I have seen online, I can’t wait to see them in person.

Lauemeier Sculpture Park in Sunset Hills: If you feel the need to embrace the heat or you are just crazy, you should check out Camp Out: Finding Home in an Unstable World. Artists explore “home” with exhibits both inside and outside.

No excuses, you have a list–go get some culture this weekend!!
