More It's Yours, Take It Pieces arrive for New Orleans Show

For It's yours, Take It - New Orleans

In conjunction for a June show involving cities around the world (Southsea, UK; Canada; Singapore; Australia; and New Orleans) these artists have sent pieces for a free, public exhibition of artwork that will be held on June 7th in the Fauxborg Marigny. As a thank you from NoLA Rising to all the people who have enjoyed what we have been doing, we present, "It's Yours, Take It."

"It's Your's, Take It" will be a single location show in which the artwork from the last paint party, along with a number of artists from around the world, will be hung in a public venue for your enjoyment. If there's a piece that you really enjoy, we ask that you take it, but we also ask that you only take one so that others may enjoy it also.

The exact location will remain a secret until the day of. Check back to see new artwork as it arrives for the show.

Paint Party for the "It's Yours, Take It" Show

NoLa Rising enthusiasts came out to XO Studios last Saturday to celebrate a day of community events hosted by Rex, XO Studios and the St. Claude Arts District.

Artwork created will go to a free public exhibition of work called "It's Yours, Take It" coming in June in conjunction with four other cities around the world. The artwork will be displayed in a highly pedestrian area and in the spirit of NoLA Rising...you, both the passer-byer and the audience, can enjoy the pieces throughout the selected day and even take a piece should you come across one you like.

The date will officially be announced via this blog the day of and through "day of" word of mouth. Get connected, be connected and help NoLA Rise through the benefits of public art. Also, we're setting the next event to benefit the New Orleans Public Schools with donated art supplies.

Now for some pictures to be displayed at It's Yours, Take It:
