So close, in fact, that the same site hosts all the ticket sales. The big kid on the block is The Pageant, which fits between 1,000 and 2,300 music fans. Just down the street is the Duck Room at Blueberry Hill, with a maximum capacity of 340. Delmar Hall is designed to land perfectly between them, hosting between 350 and 750 concert-goers, depending on the configuration. Co-owners also

We talk about “creative cities,” but do little to systemically augment, articulate and unleash a creative ethos into cities themselves. As an inherent part of their urban DNA, cities must facilitate idea sharing, provoke new possibilities, and encourage experimentation. Gabriella Gómez-Mont will draw from her experiences leading Laboratorio para la Ciudad—the award-winning experimental arm and creative think tank of the Mexico City government—to address how we can reframe the role of government, citizens and businesses to encourage social, economic and political inventiveness for our urban futures.

Organized by the Saint Louis Art Museum with support from The Edward L. Bakewell Jr. Endowment for Special Exhibitions. Financial assistance provided by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency, the National Endowment for the Arts; the Nestlé Purina PetCare Company; and Leslie Hindman Auctioneers.

Robert Rauschenberg, American, 1925–2008; Signs (detail), 1970; hand-painted screenprint; 42 7/8 × 34 inches; Saint Louis Art Museum, Gift of the Honorable and Mrs. Thomas F. Eagleton 311:1986 © Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Commissioned and ultimately rejected for the cover of Time magazine in 1969, Robert Rauschenberg’s Signs recalls the turmoil and tragedies of the decade. The photomontage of images from newspapers and magazines emphasizes Rauschenberg’s concern for the state of American society of that time.
