The one-time disbursement of $35,000 is an effort to promote the facility as a regional destination that can draw the kinds of acts seen at St. Louis venues like The Pageant.
The City of Chesterfield is looking to get more noise out of its amphitheater by hosting a ticketed event this year in an effort to showcase the facility for private enterprises. The city council approved pulling $35,000 from its park fund reserves toward hosting the private event at a recent meeting. Councilman Randy Logan said the idea is not for the city to become a full-time concert promoter, but the request still drew opposition from fellow councilman Barry Flachsbart, who voted against the proposal. “I just have this uneasiness with us competing in the sense with the private organizations that might do things like that,” he said. Flachsbart added that his vote was “based on principal” and described his objection as mild. Planning and…

Sculptor Matt Donovan has started an online fundraiser to pay for the creation and placement of his sculpture.
One area artist is on a quest to bring his sculpture to Chesterfield. Wildwood resident Matt Donovan is raising money to fund the placement of his work "Harvest Hunter." The bronze sculpture is about 9 feet tall and depicts a barn owl in flight. "It's a different style than most of my other pieces," Donovan said. This sculpture is more stylized, he said, pointing to the three curves at the bottom that represent vegetation.
