Prophylactic Prom

Saturday, March 23, 2019 -
8:00pm to 11:00pm

The Art Garage

2231 St. Claude Ave
New Orleans, LA 70117

The Art Garage started as an idea during the run of The Frenchmen Art Market (New Orleans’ original open air night market). While working out the specifics for The Art Garage, Frenchmen Art Market was evicted so that the landlord could open his own art market on the property. While we were left feeling uncertain and disheartened, we also saw this eviction as an opportunity. We have watched the dynamic of Frenchmen Street change drastically over the last 5 years and the timing couldn’t have been better. With The Art Garage open, we’ve been receptive to all sorts of events including Shibari demonstrations, fire spinners, weddings, and art shows in addition to art markets. While an art market is not what the space will predominantly be known for, we do want to continue supporting the arts of New Orleans while also entertaining both traditional & nontraditional events. The Art Garage has adopted Frenchmen Art Market’s unique and funky vibe and aesthetically pleasing atmosphere. Our guests will quickly recognize our living room seating, telephone booth, gazebo, one of a kind bathtub and of course, signature string lights and chalk.

Upcoming Shows

OHL's Prophylactic Prom is back again! Join us March 23rd at The Art Garage for a funky, fun special event, loosely resembling your high school prom, but rather than taffeta and tuxes, this prom's court attire will feature creative costumes designed out of ONE Condoms. The winning condom costume will take The Crown of the Prophylactic Prom Court and will be awarded with the opportunity to parade in their condom-best during the 2019 New Orleans Pride Parade! Prophylactic Prom is an opportunity to have fun, break the mold and support Odyssey House Louisiana in providing holistic, non-judgmental, compassionate care. Prom is an opportunity to support our efforts in educating, equipping, and empowering our community, while celebrating and embracing sexuality. Enjoy snacks, drinks, a raffle, and performances from the Disco Amigos, NOLA Jewels, Roux La La, and more to come soon! TICKETS are just $20 and include TWO COMPLIMENTARY DRINKS. Not drinking? Purchase our $10 "Designated Driver" ticket. Learn more at www.ohlprom.com INTERESTED IN JOINING OUR PROM COURT?! Contact Maggie at msandison@ohlinc.org
