Israeli born, St. Louis-based artist Edo Rosenblith will guide COCA visitors of all ages in creating a site-specific mural, blurring the distinction between artist and audience. Inspired by Rosenblith’s signature black and white wall drawings, the mural will reflect the thoughts, ideas, opinions and expectations expressed through collective visual impressions on COCA’s Millstone Gallery walls. Let Me Help You Make A Mural serves as a visual call and response that evolves over time, where the audience is invited to join the artist in creating a mural. The exhibition marks Rosenblith’s first time-based and community-collaborative work.

 

Curated by Yvonne Osei, Curator in Residence at COCA, the intention of this exhibition is to dissolve the boundaries between the artist’s private studio and the gallery space, inviting the public to become active participants in both the production and consumption of art.

This exhibition seeks to highlight two recent acquisitions in the context of a broad collection of textual and illustrated editions of the works of Geoffrey Chaucer from the fifteenth century to the present at the Mercantile Library. We focused on The Canterbury Tales, the Prologue and the stories about them that have inspired generations of artists, and on the important Mercantile acquisitions of the rare Caxton printing of the Tales and a nearly forgotten facsimile of the famous Ellesmere manuscript of the Tales, created in meticulous detail and brilliant color over a century ago.

This is a soul revue show for Joe's Cafe that will absolutely delight and hold sway for those who know these songs well and haven't heard them played live in a long time if ever. This sound is distinctive American gold and treasured throughout the world. In St. Louis sometimes we forget how lucky we are to have this tradition right in our own backyard. Joe's Cafe brings the sounds of Gene Jackson and Eugene Johnson to it's stage this summer. (Roland Johnson may join as well!) This will be a very special evening to say the least. Living legends coming to delight us! Below are reviews and web links that can inform and excite the masses!

"In Johnson and Jackson, he found two veteran singers who remained criminally undiscovered outside of their local market.

Listeners are treated to a wide-ranging program that samples the sounds that once rang out of Detroit, down to Memphis, and finally Muscle Shoals, AL."

Left Bank Books welcomes St. Louis author and critical care registered nurse Robert Horsey, who will sign and discuss his new novel, "Gifted"!

 

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "Gifted" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

 

JT Stone is a national standout, the number one recruited high-school basketball phenom from St. Louis. His plans for college ball, followed by the NBA, are in direct conflict with his mother Loretta Stone’s schemes. She’s a widowed, single mother of two boys with immediate aspirations of her small family rising out of her perceived poverty on the wings of JT’s great athletic ability. Kevin Mills, a man pressed to choose between his marriage or the healthcare career he loves, is no more than a familiar acquaintance to Loretta. But, he becomes a trusted friend when their lives meaningfully intersect. He must be the bridge between the gap of Loretta’s dreams of NBA greatness and the reality with which she is forced to accept.
