Literature, language, and philosophy are at the core of Buzz Spector’s work. He is a contemporary Conceptual artist who explores the aesthetic possibilities of language, paper, and books. Buzz Spector: Alterations spans the artist’s career from the 1970s to the present and includes drawings, altered books, postcard assemblages, collages, and more.

Spector is internationally recognized for his contributions to the field of contemporary art. He taught painting, sculpture, and two-dimensional design at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis for a decade before retiring in 2019. This is the first presentation of the artist’s work at a St. Louis museum.

Saturday Sessions are short workshops offered each Saturday at 11:00 AM on the Folk School Facebook page. Saturday Sessions features instructors from across the country offering instrument, vocal, and dance workshops. Free to join in, no Facebook account necessary.

Sponsored by the Missouri Arts Council.

Instructor: Miss Tess

"Blues, Stay Away From Me" for guitarists and vocalists

In this session, we'll learn how to sing and play a Delmore Brothers classic. Folks will be able to sing along and harmonize, and you'll be shown how to backup the song using three closed position movable guitar chords (swing style) so you can play it in any key without using a capo.

Join us in contributing to Common Ground, a new, participatory exhibition celebrating the opening of COCA’s expanded Ferring East Wing led by artist, Olanyiyi Akindiya.

Common Ground is a place to be together in this moment: an opportunity for us all to forget our differences, what positions we hold in society or any of the other cultural forces that push us apart.

Common Ground is designed not only as an exhibition, but also as an ongoing collaboration with the community. There is work by the artist throughout COCA to inspire visitors to see, think, discuss, decide. The heart of the exhibit is made of modular, interchangeable pieces that symbolize the human form and are easy to manipulate. Each visitor can choose to add, move, or take away any element, creating an ever-evolving visual dialogue throughout the course of the exhibition. It will be built in by the visitors, in constant flux. The modular human figures become the tools for all of us to tell our new stories of today and what we hope tomorrow should give birth to. This piece gives us the chance to rewrite the wrong, to understand we cannot do anything about what has happened, but we can make tomorrow a better place for the next generation. Resiliency lies in us coming together to honor and celebrate our differences.

The Saturday Night Lisolation show is a livestream event of Americana Folk, Rock and Blues favorites with a warm peppering of storytelling throughout the show. While getting to hear some well-known favorites in the genre, Carl M Banks includes his original repertoire that draws inspiration from unlikely, yet relevant places, ranging in subject matter from 19th century abolitionists to WWE wrestlers (remember when it was an "F"?). The nylon-string electric lends a brightness to his folk-synth interpretations, while story arcs of both the classic and original music pulls listeners into an active hearkening experience. Join in via both Instagram (@carlmbanks) and Facebook Live (https://www.facebook.com/carl.banks1).

Storm of Progress: German Art after 1800 from the Saint Louis Art Museum presents the Museum’s world-class collection of German art of the last 200 years. From Romanticism in the 1800s to the eclectic globalism that followed the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, this exhibition highlights how art, politics, and history are inextricably linked.

The exhibition brings together 120 works in chronological and thematic sections that explore key ideas and events from German art and history spanning national unification, industrialization, World Wars I and II, the Holocaust, and the Cold War and its aftermath. Art in a wide range of media, from paintings to decorative arts, shows the richness of the Museum’s collection, and many works will be on view for the first time.

This unique civic treasure of German art is a testament to the philanthropic support of our patrons. Because of their generosity, we are able to offer this exhibition free of charge during this unprecedented time.
