St. Louis Arts Experience 2016 Promo

The St. Louis Arts Experience is a citywide arts collaboration showcasing exceptional cultural events happening throughout the St. Louis region from September 30 through October 16, 2016.

Our goal? To welcome you to the arts!

This season, the festival extends a special invitation to newcomers to the arts – people yet to experience the energy of a great concert, the serenity of an art gallery, the power of live drama and the unforgettable beauty of dance.

Most calendar events include an opportunity for curious beginners to get acquainted with the arts.

Take advantage of ticket discounts, join us for free workshops, take a backstage tour, meet the artists, engage in fun family activities and so much more as you step out into our city’s robust arts scene.

We think you’ll love what you discover!

State of the Arts is St. Louis’ only program devoted to the region’s vibrant arts community, taking audiences behind the scenes to meet the artists, writers, and performers who call St. Louis home.
