Degas dominates the current special exhibit at the Saint Louis Art Museum— Degas, Impressionism, and the Paris Millinery Trade—but the exhibit benefits mightily from the work of other major impressionists—Cassat, Renoir and Manet among them— and a brilliant collection of period hats. www.slam.org. 1 Fine Arts Dr., 314.721.0072.
