“The People’s Murals” is an extensive exhibition of murals that were painted by hundreds of community members – many of whom had never held a paint brush in their hand before – during the Prospect.2 International Art Festival in New Orleans in 2011. Local artist Robert Tannen launched this collaborative mural project. In a reversal of the traditional gallery model, the interactive project invited citizens to come in and make art rather than to just look at it. There were no instructions given to the nearly 400 participants other than to “make images that were interesting or important to them,” according to Tannen.
Eight of these large collaborative 12’ by 15’ canvases will be exhibited in Central City and herald a donation of the murals to public facilities throughout the City. The work of other local artists including Ayo Scott, Allen Lefort, Talbot Palmer, and Ron Bechet, who also worked on the murals, will be on exhibit as well.
Open 11am - 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays
"The Spirit of the People of St. Bernard: Portraits and Videos", an exhibition celebrating the heritage of St. Bernard residents, is currently being shown at The River House.

The exhibit features photographs by Blake Boyd, Keith Calhoun, Chandra McCormick, Jonathan Traviesa, Kelsey Stult, and Monique Verdin, as well as video interviews by Jeanne Nathan and Mike Lancaster. The exhibition continues through November 15 and will be open from 11am - 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays and by appointment. Southern Coffee Punch, lemonade and morning treats are served on Sundays.

Performance: 11/21, 2pm (1:00 Sound Check) at the Old U.S. Mint
Adult musicians with at least 1 year of experience on their instrument are invited to hone their skills in performance, improvisation and music literacy while networking with potential collaborators and passing a good time in a light, supportive atmosphere. Under the direction of acclaimed musician-educator Khari Allen Lee (KhariAllenLee.com), this 8-week course and concert will survey music from the New Orleans diaspora. We will offer two sections to accommodate different levels of experience--a 6:45-8:00 Trad ensemble (especially for less experienced players) and an 8:15-9:30 survey course (recommended for more experience musicians and/or advanced alums).
Questions? Email email@example.com or call 504-942-7606.
Proceeds will benefit Musicollaborative's children's programs to assist in the purchase of new instruments and support the scholarship fund.
