Food Glorious Food Redux

visual and culinary feast awaits! Art Saint Louis brings art and food together for a block party celebrating the exhibition Food, Glorious Food in the gallery/café at 1223 Pine Street in downtown St. Louis. The exhibition will be ushered in with an opening reception to whet your appetite – join us on Saturday, July 26 for all the best in local food & art. The main course, of course, is the art exhibition – but there’s much more on the menu! Food trucks will offer delectables outside the gallery and the baristas of Mississippi Mud Coffee Roasters Café will create hot and cold drinks made to order inside. The adjacent Kaufman Park will house live painters, a participatory chalk art event, live music and plenty of room for picnickers.
