Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium is seeking to fill open volunteer positions within our Bug Ambassador program. This is ongoing.

Bug Ambassadors interpret live animal exhibits, engage visitors in learning, and assist staff with live animal presentations.

Haiku with Abandoned Ghosts: New Work by Demond Matsuo
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 7, 2015 6 – 10 pm
Exhibition Dates: March 7 – April 4, 2015
25% of proceeds to benefit: S.T.V Movement
Demond Matsuo is a traveler, a collector of images, an artist whose practice appears as vital as any other function of his being. In his own words “I search the world through seas of papers and inspirations, trying to arrive at a conclusion, a synthesis. The collage serves as a treasure map of sorts, an alchemical illustration pulling you through to understanding my overall meaning.” What you are pulled up through is multilayered Japanese-inspired figures, thick with saturated color and detail. The images echo centuries of ancient history and still vibrate with the ever-present sense that power is a volatile, complex force that can wrap us up in violence, as easily as it can inspire.
Registration open NOW through April 3, 2015.

April-- New Orleans, LA-- This burlesque parody of Emmy-nominated Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Once More With Feeling" will celebrate the career of writer/director/producer Joss Whedon, featuring characters from Buffy, Marvel's The Avengers, and more. Presented by Honey Tangerine and Artemis Lark at the Old Marquer Theatre (formerly the Shadowbox), "Once More With Peeling" will run four nights between Wednesday, April 8th and Monday, April 13th.
"Joss Whedon's work is always rooted in feminism. Burlesque is all about agency, taking the objectification of bodies and making it on your own terms. Any feminist material would certainly lend itself to the medium."
"Once More With Peeling" will feature performances from Baron Reinhardt, May Hemmer, Miss Monarch M, Persé Fanny, Queenie O'Hart, Vincent Gallant, and will be hosted by Randii Andii.
Thursday-Saturday, April 9th-11th, 2015
