Escaped Art!

The Art Hunters have been called in to find, capture and return the escaped artworks back to the Springfield Art Museum. It seems as though one piece of artwork comes to life each week and “leaves.”

I am a member of the reserves, helping to locate the missing art each week. It is a lot of fun…not what I expected when I first started! We have to figure out clues which lead us to various places around town to gather up the needed phrase to relay to the two head Art Hunters.  It’s like a mystery, solving puzzles, similar to geocaching,….just plain fun.

I certainly hope they do it again next summer. : )

Hidden Gem Vegan Cafe in St. Louis

Sweetart at 2203 South 39th Street is a great place to stop and spend awhile. It is a cafe, bakeshop, and art studio. cbabibayoc is the artist whose work is displayed on the walls. And 8×10 prints of his work are also for sale. Once discovered, you will want to go back! ( (
