A new exhibition at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport features natural and handmade objects that may or may not have been intended to be art.
Curated by John Foster , an artist, designer and collector, Accidental Mysteries, features both intentional art and found objects that have been transformed by time or the elements and can now be viewed as art.
“The intent is to look at the very meaning of art,” said Foster, “and challenge preconceived ideas. Think of this exhibition as a ‘cabinet of curiosities.’”
Look for a painted suitcase, a pair of transformed baby shoes, decayed alarm clocks, art carved birds, a melted phone and wood carvings that go beyond the ordinary.
Accidental Mysteries runs through April 17, 2016, in the Lambert Gallery at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.
