More than 30 fresh floral installations soon will be on view at the SAINT LOUIS ART MUSEUM for Art in Bloom, which is making its return following a five-year hiatus. The museum’s signature celebration of fine art and fresh flowers begins Feb. 28 and continues through March 2. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

The ST. LOUIS SYMPHONY has a new principal oboe. JELENA DIRKS will join the orchestra at the start of the 2014-2015 season, replacing Peter Bowman, who is stepping down. Dirks, who teaches piano and oboe at DePaul University in Chicago, is highly sought-after as both a teacher and performer. She is the third generation of professional female musicians in her family. Her mother is retired Chicago Symphony violist Karen Dirks.

Fox Associates is searching for the new top executive at The Fabulous Fox. Longtime Fox Theater president RICHARD BAKER is departing to become president/CEO of Kansas City’s Starlight Theatre in March. During his 14 years at the helm, Baker oversaw the Fox through significant growth and preservation efforts. He also was instrumental in creating the Master Plan to revitalize the Grand Center Arts District.

Fighting winter’s bitter chill with a dose of sweetness…It didn’t take long for Sweetology’s KARA NEWMARK to come up with a Plan B: After stl250 organizers were forced to reschedule last week’s Burnin’ Love Festival due to icy conditions at Art Hill, Newmark, along with co-owner DeANN BINGAMAN, decided to donate 500 cupcakes slated for the event to the Sweetology’s Kara Newmark Salvation Army for distribution among the people served by the organization. Sweetology, an interactive retail bakery where customers can decorate their own cakes, cupcakes and cookies, will officially make its debut on April 12 at 9214 Clayton Road in Ladue.
