CAC Preps for White Linen Night



As the old saying goes, you can’t wear white after Labor Day. Luckily for you, you have one more chance to don your best white linen suit this year— the annual Whitney White Linen Night! This Saturday (8.1). the Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans, in conjunction with the Arts District of New Orleans, will host the annual art party. Many galleries around Julia Street will be open to the public as a part of the free block party, and both the CAC and Ogden Museum of Southern Art will premier new exhibitions of Louisiana art.

Even though New Orleans City Council deferred judgment on the Uber elephant in the room, they still had plenty of city business to handle. As always, Mardi Gras and White Linen Night were on the minds of the elected officials, as was firefighters' retirement fund and subdivision names.
