And if you're in the mood for some art....be sure to check out Postcards from New Orleans from 6:00pm - 10:00pm at The Front (4100 St Claude Ave.)....The show includes works by Artists: Jessica Goldfinch, Dan Tague, Alex Podesta, Chris Jahnke, Maxx Sizeler, Srdjan Loncar, Laura Gipson, Rachel Jones, Monica Zeringue and Aaron McNamee. For ten years, the University of New Orleans and the City of Innsbruck have held an annual artist exchange. Every summer a few graduating UNO, MFA students are granted a show in old-town Innsbruck, and every academic year, a few Austrian artists mount a show at the UNO Fine Arts Gallery. To commemorate the tenth anniversary of this international event, UNO Fine Arts Chair and Exhibitions Director Christopher Saucedo organized a show of ten New Orleans based artists who have participated in this exchange over the years and bundled them together into a exhibition that opened on July 5th at Galerie im Andechshof. Saucedo intended that the show would convey, to the Innsbruck audience, an aesthetic of tourist's snapshots of the dynamic and unique, visual voice of our home town. The exhibition has now traveled back to New Orleans and will be on view at The Front from September 11th until October 3rd.
At Rock 'N Bowl (3016 S. Carrollton) tonight it's a tribute to our first responders out there with a concert by The Boogie Man and The Wise Guys starting up at 9:30 pm.....All first responders get FREE admission to the show tonight so go out there, have some fun and show your support!!!
