This fall, the World Chess Hall of Fame invites visitors into a world of battle, strategy, creativity and passion; a world where lessons are hard-won and success does not come without sacrifice.

"Living Like Kings: The Unexpected Collision of Chess and Hip Hop Culture" runs Oct. 9 through April 26 at the hall of fame, 4652 Maryland Ave. in the Central West End.

The exhibition explores the surprising ways in which the ancient game of chess intersects with the powerful, creative expression in hip hop culture.

"Living Like Kings" is centered on an immersive, multimedia experience created by St. Louis artist Benjamin Kaplan. Commissioned by the World Chess Hall of Fame, the installation includes archival and original video, music and photography, custom-designed type and illustration, and a series of interviews.

The second floor gallery at the hall of fame serves as a companion Learning Lab for the "Living Like Kings" exhibition. The lab allows visitors to participate in the show through interactive music and video stations, hands-on art opportunities, and educational presentations.
