Last Paintings Hanging 

Two paintings enter, one painting leaves

On Saturday, just days before the presidential election, St. Louisans will have another opportunity to let their voices be heard at Art Attack: Day of the Dead Art. This auction to benefit KDHX and the Saint Louis City Open Studio and Gallery pits two paintings against each other in elimination rounds determined by the audience. The painting receiving the best response, as ascertained by the Applause-O-Meter, moves on to the next round. The fate of losing paintings is determined by the Wheel of Misfortune, which includes opportunities to bid on and rescue the works, as well as the ever-popular "certain death" option — which sends paintings straight to the gallows. Past paintings have met their end via chainsaw, samurai sword and a hillbilly hell-bent on destruction. Doors open at 7 p.m. at the Koken Art Factory (2500 Ohio Avenue), and in addition to the art-carnage, you can enjoy performances by the Alley Cat Revue and a suitably high-energy soundtrack selected by DJ Doug Morgan. Tickets are $10. For information visit
