Treasure Trova

St. Louis' whimsical sculptor receives the first posthumous survey of his life's work thanks to the kindness of supporter, fellow-artist and friend, Matthew Strauss. Ernest Trova, the exhibition, charts the development of Trova's Falling Man series from its origin in his paintings to its eventual fame as his epic-scale sculptures (many of which still dot the public spaces of our fair city). Also on display are works that have not been seen publicly in more than four decades., a comprehensive website created especially for this exhibition, features images of Trova's work, his studio and clippings from his archive. Ernest Trova opens with a free public reception from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, June 5.
Wednesdays, Saturdays. Starts: June 5. Continues through July 17, 2010
