Artgasm: This Weekend's Art Openings, February 19-21, 2010

Categories: Arts, Go!
Now that Mardi Gras (and the hangover) has passed, people are giving up all sorts of crazy things for Lent. Luckily, art isn't one of them! So get your mind off the cigarettes, reality TV guilty pleasure of your choice, and check out one of these openings.

If you don't see your show listed, please leave the information in the comments (and drop a note to calendar@riverfronttimes.com so we can list in the online calendar). All art openings are free unless noted. For a full list of all ongoing art shows in the St. Louis area, please click here.
