On Friday, February 3, 5–10 pm, Artfully AWARE takes over the New Orleans Museum of Art for a special event. For a night that will celebrate the rich diversity of New Orleans, children and adults from across the community and the world have contributed artwork and creative writing that will be displayed in the Great Hall and surrounding galleries. There are over 100 participating schools, community groups, health centers, organizations, and professional artists.
The evening begins with a performance by the Mardi Gras Indian tribe, the Guardians of the Flame. Michael Watson, the musical director of Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse, will play with a four-piece band, the New Orleans Dance Collective will perform an inspiring dance piece based on unity, and much more.
