On August 29, RFT Artopia will return for its sixth gala celebration of the arts in St. Louis. The 2720 Cherokee Performing Arts Center (2720 Cherokee; 314-875-0233) will be crammed with live performances of the musical and visual flavor along with a fully decked-out fashion show. Expect the two story building to bustle with the brains behind many local masterworks, as well as outlandishly dressed attendees.

We here at RFT couldn't be more excited for the MasterMind Awards. Many artists go forth with much effort and little pay. Each year, we sling a few $1,000 checks out to lucky local artists. Although nominations are now closed, please join us to celebrate the four recipients of this year's MasterMind Awards.

Tickets will cost you $30 in advance, $35 at the door, but be on the look-out for a daily deal that cuts the price in half. If the dessert bites and three full size drinks just aren't enough, the VIP tickets ($50 in advance, $60 at the door) include access to the private lounge with catered food by Seoul Taco, 5 drinks and a gift bag. The food and drink here are reason enough to take the dip, but the unpredictable, outrageous entertainment certainly sweetens the pot.
