Artfully AWARE will take over the New Orleans Museum of Art for a special event that will celebrate the rich diversity of New Orleans. Children and adults from across the community and the world have contributed artwork that will be displayed in the Great Hall and galleries. The evening begins with a performance by the Mardi Gras Indian tribe, the Guardians of the Flame. Michael Watson, musical director of Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse, will play with a quartet, and the New Orleans Dance Collective will perform. Visitors can interact with professional artists from the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Contemporary Arts Center and One Million Bones, catch a literary reading organized by the Pirate's Alley Faulkner Society, listen to original prose read by students from NOCCA, view photography that reflects the Sierra Club's environmental efforts, hear speakers from the Young Leadership Council and watch films selected by FosterBear Films that explore human rights.
