Mother's Day approaches! This year, rather than dropping twenty bucks at Walgreens on candy and flowers, why not show your mom what a cultured, classy child she raised by taking her to the annual Art Fair at Laumeier Sculpture Park (12580 Rott Road; 314-615-5278)? Every year on Mom's Day weekend the sprawling open-air museum plays host to more than 14,000 visitors, displaying and selling art from 150 different artists of a wide range of mediums. The fair opens on Friday, May 11, at 6 p.m. with a wine-tasting event and runs Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. New this year is a Mother's Day brunch on Sunday, sponsored by Whole Foods Market and Marmi. General-admission tickets cost only $8 for adults and $5 for kids; the brunch and wine-tasting events require additional admission and advance reservations. Visit www.laumeiersculpturepark.org for tickets and more details.
