Knives Out 

Art goes spooky

Though he was not the first, Jack the Ripper is the father of the modern serial killer, and his crimes created a media frenzy felt around the world. The Ripper story is the ultimate whodunit, inspiring everything from books to films, video games to comics, and now, 120 years after Jack claimed his first victim, the Koken Art Factory (2500 Ohio Avenue) presents Jack's Art Show, a one-night-only celebration of St. Louis' wildest and weirdest artwork. From 7 p.m. to 1 a.m., check out the spooky work of dozens of area artists (that's a piece by Dallas Moses pictured), and don't be afraid to add to the atmosphere by attending in costume. Music from Gentleman Auction House, food and a cash bar will help keep Halloween spirits high. Admission is $2. For more information visit
