PAINT PARTY - NOLA RISING & IT'S YOURS, TAKE IT
the old XO STUDIOS
the PARK next to 2833 Dauphine Street
(Dauphine and Press Streets... Marigny/Bywater border at the train tracks... New Orleans)
SUNDAY - NOVEMBER 20th - 2011 - NOON until 4ish
For the fifth installment of New Orleans’ It’s Yours, Take it, Rex would yet again like to continue the practice of a holiday art swap. For the fifth year in a row, artwork has been created and sent in for a toy for art swap to raise toys for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program and similar programs in the New Orleans area. The premise is simple: Someone brings a brand new toy in a box to donate to children and they get to take a piece of art with them. The toys are then donated to programs for their annual holiday distribution.
The paint parties have been going on since that pesky storm passed by our city and our levees failed due to (well, you know)... To bolster the NoLA Rising offerings to people who bring toys in a box, we are having a paint party in conjunction with New Orleans Fringe Festival. The artwork created during the art event will be stored until the day of the art swap at the Hi-Ho Lounge.
