Schlafly Art Outside Festival
Schlafly Beer is proud to sponsor the 20th annual Art Outside Festival held at Schlafly Bottleworks in historic Maplewood, MO, September 8-10, 2023. This is a fine arts fair, in which every piece of artwork is unique and made by the artists. We will be inviting an array of mediums such as: acrylic, ceramics, glass, jewelry, metalwork, oil, pastel/pencil/charcoal, pen/ink, photography, stonework, tempera, textile/fiber, watercolor, and woodworking - just to name a few!
Like beer, art brings people together and we aim to raise awareness and appreciation of art, music and an ice cold beer that are all created in our very own community.
Each year, we feature over 60 local artists (all who reside within a 125 mile radius) and deliver a family-friendly experience you won’t find anywhere else. Come peruse and get to know art without pretense.
