Today In NOLA 10.3.15

Art for Art’s Sake is taking over Julia and Magazine Street, and The Preservation Hall Ball is benefitting the Preservation Hall Foundation at The Civic. Gleason Gras is honoring Steve Gleason. Also, the Pelicans are taking on the Pacers in their first pre-season game. But back in the day, as they say, the Bloomingdale brothers open their first store in NYC (1872), Allen Ginsberg’s Howl was ruled not obscene (1957), the Dick Van Dyke Show premiered on CBS (1961), West and East Germany declared the creation of one unified nation (1990), and O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murder charges (1995). It’s Gwen Stefani’s birthday, and Woody Guthrie’s death (1967). Here's what's happening today:

Compressing New Orleans’ love for art, music, shopping, and delicious cocktails into one well-lit night of semi-drunken art appreciation, Art for Arts’ Sake was a no-brainer when the Contemporary Arts Center founded it in 1979. The annual autumnal extravaganza takes place this Saturday, October 6, and centers around Julia and Magazine Streets.
