Louisiana Culture in Art: Join art & film lecturer ProfValFranco for a look at the vibrant arts scene in contemporary Louisiana. We’ll explore contemporary culture and its effects on the visual arts in Louisiana today, while we take a peek inside the holdings of the New Orleans Museum of Art and its incredible outdoor sculpture garden. We’ll also turn the spotlight on the contemporary arts scene in New Orleans through artists like muralist Brandon Odums & abstract artist Mallory Page, multimedia artist Franco Alessandrini, and representational painter James Michalopoulos. If time permits in the first of a two part series, we’ll even explore the Big Easy’s gallery scene as exemplified by the Stella Jones Gallery.
We will meet tonight at 7 as regularly scheduled for the intro to Another Round, and then will reconvene at 9:20 pm to discuss last week’s film ALICE & compare it to this evening’s film, the Danish film – ANOTHER ROUND. See you this evening!
