This week's picks for things to do in St. Louis include seeing art and visiting some bars — two of the best things the area has to offer. Don't forget to check out our weekend picks, as well:

Thursday 05/12

Paws for a Good Cause

Ballpark Village is inviting those with two legs — and four — to its Paws 4 Pints event, promising an evening full of belly rubs, tail wags and more. The event supports Stray Rescue of St. Louis, and adoptable dogs will be at the event. A small donation to Stray Rescue will get you cheap drinks and access to specials throughout the event. The patio is also pup friendly, in case you want to bring your four-legged friend. The event takes place at Ballpark Village on Thursday, May 12, at the Budweiser Brew House (601 Clark Avenue, stlballparkvillage.com/events/2022-05-12-paws-4-pints) from 3 to 6 p.m.  —Cassidy Waigand

While the world is discussing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, St. Louis has its very own multiverse with Chitra Ganesh: Dreaming in Multiverse. The New York-based artist draws on Hindu and Buddhist iconography, comics, science fiction, Bollywood posters and video games — and couples it with her own imagery to create visions of society in the past, present and future. This is her fourth comic series, and was largely completed during the COVID-19 shutdowns. Some of Ganesh's video animations are also part of the show in tandem with 13 digital prints. Dreaming in Multiverse is on display through late July at Washington University's Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum (1 Brookings Drive, 314-935-4523) Mondays and Wednesdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is free to attend.
