Prospect EveryOne! - Tonight - Julia Street
Come kick off the opening weekend of the PROSPECT.1 Biennial with the New Orleans Arts District's PROSPECT.EveryOne Julia Street Block Party this Thursday, October 30th, from 7-10.
This party represents the premier event curated by Shoot the Messenger Productions, a collaborative cooperative of the creative powers of Zack Smith, noted New Orleans photographer and musician, and Miranda Lake, local painter recently named one of the Top Ten Artists in New Orleans by Art Voices Magazine.
The night promises to be a blast as we have gathered some of our favorite people and things from New Orleans for you all to share, enjoy and celebrate.
While there, stop by the Lucky You! Popcorn Stand, get a homemade eyeball cupcake while they last, and pay tribute to the self proclaimed Emperor of the Universe himself, the one and only, Ernie K-Doe!
Our sisters in the Big Easy Rollergirls will be there knockin' bastards down; NoLA Rising will be on the scene to scoop up miscreants and put them in the Fine Art Jail (accommodations will be unpleasant); Watch for the Pussyfooters!; Visit the SUMO ring and try your luck and wrestling; Tikki Rockers to lull you to a firey sleep and much much more of the bizarre (for Julia Street that is).
NoLA Rising will be located at the corner of Camp and Julia and we'll have a art jail where you can pay to have your friends thrown in jail. While there, they will be forced to make art in our hard labor section. Be wary though, if they buy a get out of jail free card, they are immune and can have you thrown in jail without reciprocity. In the end, we promise a good time, lots of laughs and some smokin' hot cops!
