Today in NOLA 4.8.17


Day three of FQF is underway in the Vieux Carre. Watch some classic or live kung fu at Shaolin-Do’s Second Saturday. Kenny Chesney plays HOB to benefit two great causes. On this day in 1682, the Louisiana Territory received its name from Sieur de la Salle. Now, more to do this Saturday.


Today in NOLA: 5.14.16


Anthony Hamilton is coming to town and there are parties on St. Claude and Fulton Alley. Plus, there’s lots and lots of local music to check out. On this day in 1845, Louisiana’s first free public school opened. Now, more ways to school yourself in Louisiana culture this Saturday.


Going to Their Head

Pols Painted Playfully in 'Heads of State' at Barrister's Gallery



With Second Saturday around the corner, Cheryl Castjohn looks at politicians as VanHoffacker sees them at Barrister's Gallery.


Second Saturday: Inside the Minds of Serial Killers at Good Children Gallery


The American public's fascination with serial killers is a merging of two of its chief amusements: celebrity and violence. Most of us can probably recite a list of our favorite trinomial killers in the same way we might talk about influential albums that spoke to us in the black light of dorm rooms. It is this serial cataloging that artist Nina Schwanse mines in her new exhibition Hold It Against Me: The Veronica Compton Archive, opening Saturday night at the Good Children Gallery as part of this month's Second Saturday event.


Out Front in 2013

St. Claude Gallery Welcomes New Year with Climbing, Digging and a Look at the Future



The Front, an artist-run collective and not-for-profit gallery on St. Claude, opened all of its doors last Saturday, January 12, for a three-week-long show of photography and conceptual work. Why did all the doors need to be open? You’ll find out.


Homespace Gallery Turns 5 at Second Saturday


by M.D. Dupuy

This weekend’s Second Saturday celebration will fill St. Claude with new visual art exhibitions, but the real party is hidden from the main thoroughfare in the St. Roch neighborhood. Homespace Gallery (1128 St. Roch) is celebrating theirir fifth anniversary, and all are welcome to enjoy brass, cocktails, street food, and 40 local and national artists on display.   


Today in New Orleans 9.08.12


Tiger Stadium welcomes in the Washington Huskies tonight for their second game of the season, and people in NOLA can catch the game on ESPN at 6pm. Times-Pic society writer Nell Nolan is performing for her fellow fired scribes, milfs will be marching around town by the millions, and art lovers can get excited for Second Saturday events happening all day and night in New Orleans. Happy Birthday to Ruby Bridges, the civil rights leader who paved the way for integration in the New Orleans school systems at only 6 years old. Now for today's happenings:


Today in New Orleans: 5.12.12


Today, NOLA Veggie Fest sprouts up at the New Orleans Healing Center, an all-you-can-eat crawfish berl peels away at the lakefront, the Big Easy Roller Girls return and Second Saturday art openings arrive again at St. Claude. On this day in Louisiana history, the World's Fair opened in New Orleans (1984) and a new Constitution featured the "Grandfather Clause," which allowed illiterate whites to vote, but also created a poll tax and literacy test designed to disqualify black voters (1898). Now back to the events of the day:


Night Market Returns to St. Claude Ave. on Second Saturday


It's that time of the month in downtown New Orleans. Second Saturday arrives again on St. Claude Ave this weekend. Slated for 6-10 p.m. just down the strip from the main cluster of galleries will once again be a Night Market. Located at 2709 St. Claude (next to St. Coffee near the corner of Port Street), the market will feature 30 vendors selling their wares, which in this case include arts, crafts and, since looking art makes the stomach grumble, more food.


Music Box Rewind, Flash Mob Highlight St. Claude's Second Saturday Art Openings


by Brad Rhines

While the Contemporary Arts Center will be closed this weekend for a Hollywood film shoot, St. Claude Avenue will be bustling with their monthly second-Saturday openings. Among the events this weekend are a reprise of last fall’s acclaimed Piety Street installation “Music Box: A Shantytown Sound Laboratory” and a collaborative performance event called “Posing Process,” an on-going piece originally conceived for and installed in the CAC, but recently removed and relocated in the wake of the CAC protests.
