A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes, Fashion and Chess

“Even for a non-chess player, there would be a type of intrigue by knowing that such an enigmatic game has such a rich history and connection to the arts. Some consider chess a sport, science, game and art. With the exhibit “A Queen Within,” one can definitely see another aspect of its artistic expression. Well done!”

—Daim Shabazz, The Chess Drum


“…A rich, rare and thoroughly enjoyable experience, and I think it’s a great contribution to the quality of life here. Although I walk past the Chess Hall of Fame most days on my walk with my husband and I watched it take shape, I had never been inside. It’s amazing how much value, beauty and interest you were able to pack into two floors. Very impressive and a rewarding discovery!”


“…World class and raised the bar in St. Louis for events of this nature.” (Queen’s Gala)


“…Moving and inspiring… the whole city is in awe. Thank you for making this a better city through your vision, leadership and hard work.”
