So you want to see some art? Well, you could schlep yourself around the city in search of some cultural treasures. Or you could do it in style, sampling wine and hors d'oeuvres while being shuttled to a selection of galleries that has been curated for you. On the ArtDTour, presented by the St. Louis Artists' Guild and ArtDimensions of St. Louis, participants start at the Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park and then choose one of two routes, proceeding to such locations as the Sheldon Art Galleries, the Craft Alliance Gallery, the Gateway Gallery and the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum. Refreshments and entertainment are provided along the way. Tickets are $10 to $20 and include transportation as well as admission to the after-party at the Boathouse (6101 Government Drive), where guests will find more art, in addition to food, music and prizes from 10 p.m. till midnight. Tours depart at 6:30 and 7 p.m. Call 314-497-5356 to reserve a seat.
