Water Cairns Exhibit
Oct 23 @ 10:00 am – 8:00 pm

This new photography exhibit artfully highlights the St. Louis area’s close connection to rivers and streams. The images of the Watershed Cairns exhibit document important places in our regional watershed through vivid, large-scale photos of sculptural cairns made of glass. By naming and mapping sites of the photos, the exhibit offers visitors the chance to learn of the interconnection of these waters and the areas through which they pass.

Alton Little Theater presents: Kosher Lutherans (Comedy)
Oct 23 @ 7:30 pm

Hanna and Franklyn are a seemingly perfect couple and desperately want to have a child, but are unable to do so. They begin to wonder if they’ll ever be able to have a child, and they have a chance encounter with a God-fearing pregnant girl from Iowa who has conceived out of wedlock and offers to let them adopt her baby. Just after the adoption papers are signed, the couple finds out that the girl does not know they are Jewish. Knowing that this could crush their chances of getting the child, Hanna and Franklyn pose as Lutherans to attract the girl and her obvious Midwestern sensibilities. But how far will they go to have a family?
