Art - Math - Science and the Game of Chess Collide!
1:30pm

Co-presented with the Academy of Science - St. Louis

Join artist Bill Smith for a guided tour of his work, currently on view in the World Chess Hall of Fame’s exhibition Beyond the Humanities. Smith, who holds degrees in chemistry, biology, and diesel mechanics, in addition to an MFA in sculpture, creates artworks that are inspired by the systems and patterns that are at the core of the natural and technological worlds.

Afterwards, learn about the systems and patterns that comprise the game of chess with an introductory lesson from the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis (CCSCSL). If time permits, participate in a beginners’ tournament or simultaneous exhibition with CCSCSL staff!
