Tennessee Williams: The Playwright and the Painter
Saint Louis University Museum of Art and .ZACK
May 5–July 30, 2017
Wednesday through Sunday from 11am to 4pm
The remarkable showcase, Tennessee Williams: The Playwright and the Painter, is a major coup for St. Louis. These 18 deeply personal paintings, only once before shown outside of Key West, illustrate how Williams's magical poetry brilliantly suffuses every art form he undertook.
Exhibited at the St. Louis University Museum of Art (SLUMA), they are on loan from the Key West Art & Historical Society and the owner of the paintings, Williams’s longtime friend David Wolkowsky.
SLUMA is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11am to 4pm. Admission is free. For tickets to the panel discussion on May 6, follow the link below.
