‘Twas a night to remember as the St. Louis art and fashion communities took over the Koken Art Factory for the Contemporary Art Museum’s Dada Ball & Bash on Saturday. An unconventional selection of five-star fare (complete with an edible menu—no really, we ate our menus), drinks, stilt walkers, a chorus, a drumline, boxing ring and more made the party one for the books.
