Jammin’ on Julia – New Orleans’ Spring Art Party
Jammin’ on Julia was in full swing on Saturday, April 6th with music, libations and, of course, art on Julia and Camp Streets in the New Orleans Arts District. The event, presented by the New Orleans Arts District Association, is always a hit with art lovers and collectors. 2013 was more intimate with many galleries showcasing new exhibitions and local musical talent.
“Jammin’ on Julia is a great start to the spring festival season.” – 2013 President of NOAD, Richard Nesbitt.
Since 1990, NOAD www.neworleansartsdistrict.com has been the non-profit organization which brings together the galleries and world class museums in the Arts District, featuring art for all tastes for the casual tourist looking for mementos to museum curators. NOAD sponsors monthly Art Walks on the first Saturday of every month, as well as hosting trend-setting special events. It supports the publication, Art New Orleans Magazine, and the handy New Orleans Arts District Brochure for a walking tour, complete with map of the local galleries, restaurants and businesses.
New Orleans has always been a mecca for artists in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, because of its mild climate and picturesque architecture and lifestyle. Today, it has become an Art Destination, with recent international acclaim for the first Biennale Prospect 1. New Orleans, a multi-media citywide installation of contemporary art.
