Happy Friday! It’s time for another fun-filled weekend in St. Louis. If you are still pulling your plans together, here are a few suggestions to help make this a memorable weekend.

Grow Exhibit | Opens June 18

Self-Taught Genius: Treasures from the American Folk Art Museum | June 19 – September 11

Organized by the American Folk Art Museum, this traveling exhibit includes more than 100 works from self-taught artists. Some worked anonymously in the 19th century; some of them are well-known and contemporary. The show also includes a wide range of mediums, including needlework, ceramics, painting, drawing, sculpture, painted furniture, and texts. Well-known names on the list include Achilles Rizzoli, Henry Darger, and Bill Traylor, but the works credited to “Unknown,” are just as powerful.

Circus Flora: Pastime | Runs until July 3

Circus Flora turns 30 this summer and pays tribute to its home-base city with Pastime, a toast to St. Louis’ favorite sport. Set during the 1950s, it follows the scrappy—and unbelievably acrobatic—Mound City Zephyrs.
