Are you an admirer of art best described as "sofa-sized" and/or "Sheraton-approved"?...No? Then you'll welcome the chance to see fantastic, one-of-a-kind, super-local creations at Art Outside. This fabulous fest, which grows larger each year, combines juried art, live music, delicious food and tasty brews over three full days of family-friendly fun. Art Outside takes place from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday (September 11 through 13) at Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue, Maplewood; 314-241-8337 or www.schlafly.com). Saturday's highlights include sets by Rhythm Section Road Show and Big Brother Thunder and the MasterBlasters, among other acts. And bring your cash — this art fair offers so many pieces to wear, to hang, to share and to cherish. Admission is free.
