1 of 24



Over 150 local artists and art connoisseurs convened at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis on Tuesday night to kick off Open Studios Week. Featuring media as diverse as taxidermy, firearm mobiles, fruit, children's toys, and one very specially-endowed crash test dummy, the event showcased artists from around St. Louis who will be throwing open the doors of their private studios this weekend.
