Where: World Chess Hall of Fame, St. Louis
When: Oct. 19, 2013
What: Chess and fashion — let alone the sculptural designs of Alexander McQueen — may not seem at first to draw much in common. That will soon change with this soon-to-open exhibition, which investigates the strength of the queen as a character type in literature, in fashion, and on the gameboard. Suddenly, the two worlds don't seem too far apart anymore.
