Supporting Local Artists and Cake Hunters Everywhere – The Regional Arts Commission #52

Over the course of my cake hunt, Miles and I made many trips to the Delmar Loop to see different cakes. So even though Mercutio and I had only recently been in the Loop to see a movie and the cake at COCA, a few days later Miles and I made a quick trip down to the Loop to see the cake at the Regional Arts Commission.

Before I was a cake hunter, I didn’t know much about the Regional Arts Commission. But after seeing the cake there and learning more about them, I started seeing their influence and support throughout different cultural events in St. Louis.

Plus the Regional Arts Commission was founded in 1985 just like me, so we were already meant to form a bond 🙂

The Regional Arts Commission is many things, but I think they say it best on their website, “…we are proud of our St. Louis cultural identity and want to do whatever we can to grow, sustain and promote that identity in the future.”

One of the ways that they did this around Halloween in 2014 was to have local artists carve and decorate seven pumpkins then hide them around St. Louis in different cultural spots. Then they released clues as to where these pumpkins were hidden and created a sort of a scavenger hunt for people like me who love that kind of stuff.
