Art with Heart


Pity the poor child artists of the world; for all of their hard work at finger-painting and crayon-scribbling, the best these pint-size Picassos can hope for is a space on Mom’s fridge. Tonight, however, the tables are turned as a slew of young artists, many of whom have been touched by cancer, will have their artwork shown and auctioned off at the Kodner Gallery (9650 Clayton Road, Ladue; 314-993-4477 or as part of the St. Louis Charitable Foundation’s Children’s Art Project fundraiser. The night kicks off at 7 p.m. with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and the evening features both silent and live auctions. Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 at the door, and proceeds benefit the Friends of Kids with Cancer’s art-therapy program, Child Life Services of St. Louis Children’s Hospital’s art-therapy program and Terri’s Tutors of Churchill Center & School. For more information about the artistic evening, call 314-854-3536.
