Get SLAPed


Despite its violent acronym, St. Louis Arts Project believes in the peaceful nurturing of collective spirit. The grassroots organization would be justified in, ahem, slapping you upside the head, however, if you fail to pay attention to the messages delivered during its second annual three-day conference at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (6750 Washington Boulevard; 314-535-4660). From June 29 to July 1, listen to crusades like "Loving the Lou," which, in conjunction with Chautauqua Art Lab, will attempt to convey the deep appreciation SLAP has for our town by sharing “a living history, community map and archive” of the local art scene. There’s more than just talk going on here: In addition to some quality nonverbal transmission of enthusiasm, there will be an information expo to help connect attendees with both educational and volunteer arts opportunities, and Saturday night will feature a concert in the courtyard by the electronic musicians of Current, an RFT Best of Award-winner.
