Future Forward: A Panel Discussion

The Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans was founded in 1976. How should it move forward in 2012?

What can a contemporary arts center be?

How can it best serve artists across disciplines?

How can it best serve our city?

Where do we look to effective models?

How can we become our own model?

Next Wednesday, April 25 at 6:30 pm, Pelican Bomb will host a panel discussion on the future of the Contemporary Arts Center. This multidisciplinary panel, held at the Joan Mitchell Center (2285 Bayou Road in the former Indigo building), seeks to create a forum for public dialogue on an institution in transition.

Moderated by Pelican Bomb editor Cameron Shaw, the panel includes:

William Bowling, writer, performer, and co-founder of Goat in the Road Productions

Jan Gilbert, visual artist and CAC Interim Director of Visual Arts

Maritza Mercado-Narcisse, dancer, choreographer, and teaching artist

Bob Snead, visual artist and board treasurer of Antenna/Press Street

Dan Tague, visual artist and founding member of Good Children Gallery

Clifton Webb, visual artist and co-founder of the CAC
