I've been posting photos from the St. Lou Fringe for a couple of weeks. There are a few more shows for me to edit for the festival archives but it's time for a change.
There are a few miles of 20 foot / 6 meter floodwall along the Mississippi south of the Arch. Every Labor Day weekend muralists and taggers can redecorate the whole thing, and thus Paint Louis. This character - I don't know what you would call it - greets artists and visitors from a pillar under a railroad trestle as you enter the area. I don't know who does these. It's someone local and you see the figures here and there around town. It's freestanding but note that it's chained to the pillar.
