Every July, RCP teams with the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis to help showcase local artists by previewing the Annual City-Wide Open Studios. The fun starts on Tuesday, 7/21 at the Contemporary where you will have the opportunity to interact with participating artists and view samples of their work. Then that weekend (7/25 – 7/26), the artists are inviting you to visit the spaces where they work. Over 100 artists are participating this year so plan your routes well to see as many as possible. Finally on Sunday, make your last stop The Royale for a “starving artist” BBQ. Organized tours and bike rides are planned so check out  http://openstudiosonline.org/ for more info and to get a copy of the map.

If you have made the mistake t looking at your 401k or IRA statements lately, you know well the effects of this economic “perfect storm.” Though times are tough for all of us, they are hitting the art world especially hard as pointed out in the PD.

Though most of us can’t afford to write a big check to save the day, we can do something. Go to a play, see an exhibit, buy a membership, make a $20 donation to your favorite institution. Every little bit helps and if we all do a little that equals a lot. So support your local arts scene. It is what makes life worth living! Check out www.connectwithstl.com for a list of participating organizations and information on ways to get involved.

Looks like www.metromix.com is prepping to launch a St. Louis site.

For those of you not in the know, metromix covers all things entertainment. As the site says, “Your one-stop local entertainment guide on where to go and what to do, from the hottest restaurants and bars, to the latest in music, movies, and entertainment.”

St. Louis joins the ranks of Los Angeles, Chicago, Baltimore and just added … Lehigh Valley, Penn. KSDK is leading the way for metromix, which leaves me rejoicing because the TV station’s Web site isn’t easy to navigate, and the Post-Dispatch’s Web site’s entertainment section is a bit lacking. 

At the same time, the St. Louis metromix staff has big shoes to fill in competing for advertising dollars with the local array of entertainment news sources such as the RFT, the glossy mags and Sauce, to name a few. Time will tell how this site makes its way into the media mix.

A nice read on St. Louis, albeit outdated. The article mentions Red Moon, which has been closed for some time.

Beginning tomorrow, the St. Louis International Film Festival (SLIFF) is one of the largest and highest-profile international film festivals in the Midwest.

2007 marks its 16th year. Cinema St. Louis – the non-profit driving the festival – also gives nods to some of our communities’ best folks in the film biz with its annual St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase and the CinemaSpoke screenwriting competition.

Aside from dozens of big screen gems, foreign films and documentaries showing at places such as the Tivoli and Webster University, educational programs and special events are also on tap.

For those that crave a little more fluff than form, find out what those Jessica Alba sightings in St. Louis were all about by seeing “Bill.” “Ghost Image” – shot downtown and starring Elisabeth Rohm of Law and Order fame – also will be screened.

Take five at http://www.cinemastlouis.org/ to find out more.

This Wednesday, ALIVE Magazine kicks off a new series of events at the Contemporary Art Museum entitled Flight. The concept is to feature a geographic region, showcasing food, beverage and entertainment as well as the current exhibition. 

The first event is a trip to the Caribbean, featuring Appleton Estates Rum and Virgin Vines Wine all paired with appetizers from the new menu at Brandt’s Café. Your “in-flight” entertainment (groan) will be provided by Hot House Sessions and Papa Ray. Current artist is Maya Lin with her exhibit entitled Systematic Landscapes. Tickets are $8 in advance ($10 at the door) and are available at www.contemporarystl.org.

I am one of the guest ambassadors for this event along with fellow blogger Dwight Carter so you better go or we will write bad things about you.
