© 2018 Strange Loop
We’re taking over the City Museum for the Strange Loop party! The City Museum is a warehouse packed full of explorable art made from repurposed materials. The museum is fractal in nature and difficult to describe. It features all manner of slides, tunnels, and beautiful weirdness. They have a strict "No Maps!" policy - it's up to you to find your own path.
The Strange Loop party will feature: - Yummy food for a variety of tastes - Beer from local 4 Hands Brewing Co. - Live music from Sleepy Kitty (voted 2014 Best Indie Rock band in St. Louis by the Riverfront Times) - Scavenger hunt by Cerner -...and of course the amazing and wonderful City Museum itself!
The Strange Loop party is sponsored by:
Housed in the 600,000 square-foot former International Shoe Company, the museum is an eclectic mixture of children’s playground, funhouse, surrealistic pavilion, and architectural marvel made out of unique, found objects. The brainchild of internationally acclaimed artist Bob Cassilly, a classically trained sculptor and serial entrepreneur, the museum opened for visitors in 1997 to the riotous approval of young and old alike. Cassilly and his longtime crew of 20 artisans have constructed the museum from the very stuff of the city; and, as a result, it has urban roots deeper than any other institutions’. Reaching no farther than municipal borders for its reclaimed building materials, City Museum boasts features such as old chimneys, salvaged bridges, construction cranes, miles of tile, and even two abandoned planes! “City Museum makes you want to know,” says Cassilly. “The point is not to learn every fact, but to say, ‘Wow, that’s wonderful.’ And if it’s wonderful, it’s worth preserving.”
