prospect.1 new orleans

{via artkrush}

 

new orleans still looks to rebuild

in the wake of the hurricane that flooded 80% of the city

& displaced one million big easy residents

prospect.1 new orleans is a mega-exhibition

with 81 artists from 30 countries

bringing not only major art-world names…

but also showcases the bayou’s local artists

prospect.1 new orleans takes place in outdoor sites

& indoor venues throughout the city

from november 1 to january 18, 2009
