Jonathan Blum Returns to Re-Paint a Mural


Last month, Jonathan Blum returned to the Crescent City to re-paint a mural he painted in 1989. Now, there's more of a modern adaptation almost 19 years later. Jonathan used to live in the space with a friend of his that is a photographer.

The building is now home to friends of NoLA Rising, Rick and Deborah, who went through the permit procurement process to ensure that the ghastly ghost cannot illegally coat their artwork with his unsightly paint. Wanting to make sure everything was in order, the brought Joanthan down for Jazzfest and invited him to repaint his mural.

On May 2nd, 2009, they held a private party to unveil the new Rabbi that is entitled with a peace offering. Savvy news reporter Doug MacCash was on seen to do a Nola.Com video as seen below. Those of us at NoLA Rising applaud Rick, Deborah and Jonathan for brightening up the neighborhood! We could all use a little more color around New Orleans.

Herakut Show at Red Flagg - NEW YORK

I love getting to see new artwork, but more than that, I love getting to see new artwork from artists that I think are amazing. So, on my last jaunt up to New York to visit Sarah, we hunted down the Red Flagg Gallery in Chelsea to see the Herakut show.
