August 16th is our going away party to summer. That's right...just when you thought it was safe to put your art linens away, we invite you to Soiled Linen Day in the Marigny/Bywater. Sure, you put on your old, dirty white linen and trounced around shamelessly like a filthy bum on Royal Street. I applaud your sense of style! But, what you didn't realize is that maybe you sullied yourself in ways that you didn't realize. It's a good thing, because we don't judge and decided to honor you by having a day where you aren't expected to wear anything you don't want to (like linen...dirty or otherwise).
On August 16th, NoLA Rising is bringing to you another art show on Frenchman street during the middle of the day. From noon (or there-bouts depending on when I wake up) till say five or so, NoLA Rising compatriots will set up the artwork from the last two paint parties. It's not completely free this time...because we are asking for a donation. We'll let your conscience dictate what you give. An
And what will we do with all this donation money? One lucky art teacher from a local New Orleans public school will receive art supplies that we custom buy for his/her class.
WHO: the NoLA Rising crew
WHAT: Art for you to take home for a donation of your choosing
WHEN: Saturday, August 16th , from noon until say six or so
WHERE: At Cafe Brazil on Frenchman Street
WHY: Why not! But more importantly, so we can do our part for getting some more art supplies to a teacher who can and will use them...
But all the fun doesn't end there. At XO Studios, there is an Artist's Bazaar in the side yard. Whether you want to sell your wares or buy some of the local artwork/crafts, the artist's bazaar will have a little bit of everything. Come visit the neighborhood and see what real New Orleans artists and crafts people are up to.
