Fall Arts Guide 2012


St. Louis in the fall is a force to be reckoned with. The city's allure intensifies when the streets are littered with heaps of leaves, dead and dying and adopting warm October hues. Between the colors, the gorgeous fleeting weather and (if proximity allows) the crisp breeze blowing that warm, hoppy, brewery aroma about, it's difficult to justify leaving the front porch, much less sorting through the bounty of plays, concerts, art shows, dance performances and more taking place right within and just outside the city limits. Luckily, the pages that follow contain a convenient guide to the best seasonal art happenings, from outdoor festivals to performances by living legends — autumn sweater optional.
