The MOOD Of Every Atmosphere Should Be Right. MOOD , appeals to the more intimate. The fabulous décor may steal your eyes at the get-go but just wait until you experience the dessert infused cocktails, the reminiscing sounds of the DJ, paired with the beautiful people will keep your eyes occupied for the rest of the evening.
Although bottle service is the more expensive way to go when you go out, it’s worth it here. You can take a seat, rest your tired feet and still see and be a part of the fun.

The Des Lee Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition Two Sides of a 45: Lisha Bai, J. Michael Deane, and Jane Fox Hipple. The works of these featured artists are tethered to each other loosely through geometry and a straightforward manipulation of materials and images. All three artists are alumni of Washington University in St. Louis, and are currently based across the country.
Two Sides of a 45 is a purposefully misleading title, as there are not just two different perspectives represented. An interesting dialogue is created when the work of one artist is placed within proximity of another artist’s work, especially when the artists are not expressively explicit in their content. For instance, when Deane’s work is juxtaposed against Bai’s, it can prompt a different “read” than when it is viewed next to Hipple’s work. The title poetically references a 45 rpm vinyl record, a 45° degree angle, and a .45 caliber pistol.
Gallery hours for this exhibition will be Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 1-6pm and by appointment.
Bai earned her BFA from Washington University in St. Louis in 2001 and her MFA from Yale University in 2004.

ArticaDistance: 0.6 miCompetitive Analysis Intersection of Lewis and Dickson Streets Maryland Heights, MO 63102
The Artica festival is unlike any other festival in St. Louis. From the unique post-industrial setting to the interactive nature of the event, Artica lives and breathes creativity and innovation. We have taken a very unconventional space that is decaying and ignored and turned it into a playground for artists and participants of all ages. Every person who attends must interact in some way... simply getting to the event requires interaction with the landscape and its history. There is no vending, nothing to be bought or sold. We are not selling you funnel cakes and beer; we are providing you a canvas for self expression. People come out and camp for days to further immerse themselves in the event taking food and other parts of everyday life and making it part of the creative experience, by cooking as performance for example. There are no limitations on what a person can experience or express, barring illegal or unsafe activity. The event has been created with the simple hope of engaging our community to create using whatever is at their disposal. Many people who attend Artica are not artists, they are not unconventional people or radical thinkers, yet they come to the event and find a place filled with all manors of people and projects from marching bands to yogis to fire performers to engineers. From this there is a sense of real unity and a challenge to think of each person as a part of ones community. No matter a person’s artistic ability they are encouraged to create something, anything, even if it is a boat made from a cantaloupe with a straw mooring and a hanky sail to carry in the Boat of Dreams parade and release onto the river. Seasoned artists are challenged to do something interactive when they may only usually do oil on canvas or clay sculptures. Through the artistic expression and inclusion that takes place at Artica each participant, volunteer, artist and community member is challenged and inspired by the small parts of the whole.
The mission of Artica is to inspire the people of the St. Louis metropolitan area to celebrate their unity and diversity, build community and develop a sense of respect for themselves and their surroundings by providing opportunities for creative self-expression and communication. Artica accomplishes this by creating an annual arts festival focused on interactivity and participation that is free to all and open to the public. There is no vending or selling at the event. Therefore there are no economic limitations on who can attend. Artica creates a space that fosters the sharing of ideas and of the free exchange of each contributor's chosen art form. Every individual is encouraged and enabled to create art or to interact in artistic projects. This creates a sense of community, expands individual boundaries, and allows those who wouldn't consider themselves artists or creators to experience artistic expression via unconventional outlets. The festival certainly brings together people from different backgrounds, whether it be religious, ethnic or socio-economic, and allows them to find a common ground and interest among their differences. Every person who attends the event must interact with the landscape and the area's physical elements. That is how Artica lives its mission each year. Our long range goals are to continue providing this space and event with greater collaboration from our community. We are on our way.

The volunteer firefighters proposed and organized a fire district in 1953, thereby having the power to collect taxes to support department operations. District boundaries were laid out to cover 47 square miles in South St. Louis County. By the end of 1953, the voters of the area approved the incorporation of the Mehlville Fire Protection District (MFPD) and elected three directors.
In 1969, forty-one firefighters joined together and petitioned the International Association of Fire Firefighters for membership, becoming IAFF Local 1889. In 2012, Mehlville Firefighters joined Professional Fire Fighters of Eastern Missouri IAFF Local 2665 and continue their pride and dedication of serving the citizens of the Mehlville Fire District.
Currently, the Mehlville Fire Protection District provides fire protection and emergency medical services to a population of 110,000 residents in fifty-two square miles of South St. Louis County. The District consists of seven stations with seven engine companies (including two seventy-five foot quints), an all-terrain pumper, a heavy rescue squad, a one-hundred foot aerial platform and six ALS ambulances.

Looking at the electronic music scene in St. Louis, there seems to be a major division of fans. Some are more focused on more classic sub-genres; like house, breaks, jungle and trance. Others prefer the more modern, bass-heavy styles, such as dub and trap. Diversity is always a good thing, but it seems like some people have become so polarized in their musical preferences that it seems like they have become close-minded to the opposite faction
We all became involved in this scene because we were looking for a change from the norm. We broke out of our comfort zone, tried out something new, and found a place in our hearts and our very souls sated by the beats. That feeling is what we are striving to bring back to the scene. By reaching out to new people and exposing them to the different variations of the scene, by focusing on events in both genres, by throwing events featuring a variety of different styles of music we are hoping to build a bridge over this musical gap that we seem to have created. The bottom line is, St. Louis is to small of a city to have this much division and polarization. By focusing on all the genres that the electronic music scene has to offer, we're hoping to show that their is beauty in diversity, and that we are all Bound By Beats!

IATSE Local 6 has been serving the St. Louis region since 1890 and though some of the skills required of our technicians have changed since then, we take pride in, and a pro-active approach to, serving our clients by providing well-trained professionals with a positive work ethic. Clients considering hosting an event in the St. Louis region can rely on us for courteous, conscientious service and attention to detail from setup (load-in) to operation (rehearsals and performances) to tear-down (load-out). We are a full-service referral hall catering to the areas of entertainment lighting, audio, video, scenic, rigging, and personnel management. Many of our technicians hold certifications in these disciplines that are recognized as the industry standard for safe and ethical practices in the workplace. Local 6 considers safety to be paramount to our work and requires all members to maintain OSHA 10 safety knowledge at a minimum.
How do I know if Local 6 can provide technicians to suit my particular needs?
Below are examples of the particular work that we execute every day across the region.
Scenic construction, assembly, automation, along with props construction makes up the bulk of the work our carpentry professionals perform. Our carpenters are well versed in many construction techniques from traditional carpentry to metalworking in steel, aluminum and composite materials. Having constructed award-winning sets and iconic scenic elements, we take pride in precision and attention to detail.
Rigging construction, assembly, calculations, operation, arena systems, theatrical systems including fly systems (St. Louis is home to several working single purchase systems and one long standing “hemp house”). Currently, twenty percent (20%) of our rigging professionals hold their ETCP Certification in arena and/or theatrical rigging and our emphasis on training and education improves on that number annually.
Audio systems assembly, operation, and maintenance keep our audio technicians busy but this does not represent the limit of the scope of work that they do. Our technicians provide mixing services, both front-of-house and monitors along with console (control desk) knowledge across multiple manufacturer platforms. Audio-visual recording and broadcasting and associated peripheral equipment expertise comes standard. Whether your system is state-of-the-art or a microphone and powered speakers, our technicians will work with you to provide the best possible audio experience for your guests.
Lighting & Power
When it comes to lighting and power systems; assembly, operation, and maintenance are just the tip of the iceberg. Our technicians have the skills and expertise to get entire concert rigs for major events or “two lights on booms” up and running. Followspot operation, console (control desk) programming knowledge across multiple manufacturer platforms, dimming, intelligent lighting and accessory expertise, along with safe, practical power distribution knowledge round out the extensive capabilities of our technicians.
Video work from camera operation to switching and from “confidence” monitors to full video walls, our technical skills go well beyond standard screens and projectors. Teleprompting falls under the video aspect of our work and we have technicians who are well versed in the setup and operation of nearly every professional-grade teleprompting software/system available.
Our offices have undergone significant upgrades in technology (and still are). From streamlined referral processing and pay rolling to state-of-the-art software developments that integrate the entire process from the point a labor request is made through the final pay roll invoice, Local 6 prides itself on providing a user-friendly approach to labor needs.
We believe that timely, accurate, and professional service is the key to ensuring that our customers, both current and future, receive the best possible service before and after the event. We believe that a well-trained professional work force is the key to the best possible service during the event. We promote positive, self-motivated, industry professionals and seek to populate our referral roster with individuals who represent the very best the trade has to offer. We benefit from an industry where the work cannot readily be outsourced. (It is difficult to have someone in another city/country set up the event right here!) As a result we are committed to providing the best possible service in the region and we look forward to every opportunity to prove this commitment. Local 6 welcomes your comments and questions and we are here to serve you. Feel free to contact us directly.
