An exhibit by Israeli artist Leon Bronstein, “Between the Fantastic and the Real,” is scheduled to open March 6 in the Aronson Gallery at St. Louis University Museum of Art. An opening reception with the artist will take place that day from 5 to 8 p.m. on the second floor of the Pius XII Memorial Library, 3650 Lindell Blvd.

According to the university’s website, the exhibit shows the range and evolution of Bronstein’s work throughout his 40-year career as a sculptor. The exhibition will also include a section focusing on Bronstein’s process of developing and executing the site-specific sculpture “All You Need Is Love,” which will be installed in the Grand Center Arts District of Saint Louis. This section is meant to educate the public on how site-specific public art is conceived, executed and presented for installation in a public space.

The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, runs through May 31.
