St. Louis (KSDK) - St. Louis is home to all sorts of arts organizations. Some you're probably familiar with, like the Sheldon Concert Hall and others you might have forgotten about, which is why American Arts Experience St. Louis was crafted three years ago.

"This is a 17 day festival that celebrates the American aspect whether that's an American composer, musician, performing artist, playwright," explained Priscilla Visintine who is helping get the word out about the festival.

It's an event that allows you to discover something like the Clasp exhibit at Craft Alliance or maybe rediscover the art galleries at the Sheldon, which at the moment features Al Hirschfeld's Jazz and Broadway Scrapbook.

"You have everybody from sketches of Laurel and Hardy and the first production of 'Hello Dolly' on Broadway up to pictures of Cameron Diaz and Leonardo Dicaprio and some of today's stars," explained Chris Peimann with the Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries.

You can have one of the most unforgettable dining experiences thanks to Circus Flora.

"Yoyo the clown will be in the show. The Bertini family is going to be in it with their unicycle act," explained Joel Emery, Executive Director of Circus Flora.

Or hear great music provided by Jazz St. Louis. Whatever it is, you're bound to have a unique experience and that's what the festival is all about.
