St. Louis has more to offer culturally than Budweiser and Provel. If you need proof, the Downtown ArtWalk fills the streets with works of art (both edible and non) this Thursday, April 19, beginning at Leather Trades Artist Lofts (1600 Locust Street). Art and dance exhibits will be open to the public, along with circus acts and interactive fitness classes. STL Hoop Club and St. Louis Fire Technicians will entertain folks en route to Art Saint Louis (555 Washington Avenue), the walk’s final destination. Grab a bite to eat at any of the local restaurants along the way, including food trucks like Chop Shop and Sweet Divine, or check out the free demonstration from award-winning plein air painter Garry McMichael. The festivities are free and last from 4 to 11:30 p.m. For more information, call 314-299-7381 or visit www.visitmo.com.
