Art For Arts’ Sake first Saturday in October, 2007

4 October 2007

Don’t miss Art for Arts’ Sake. One of the best art strolls through the Arts/Warehouse District of the year, Art for Art’s Sake features many gallery openings, and new exhibits and special events at the Contemporary Arts Center.
This year the new addition of a free shuttle along Magazine Street greatly expands the number of art galleries and antique shops to enjoy. The big free party is in the 300-600 block of Julia Street.
There’s music, food and drink. Art for Arts’ Sake is always the first Saturday in October. This year that’s October 6th through the 8th. The main event is from 6-9 pm, but there’s a great after party at the Contemporary Arts Center from 7-midnight with a general admission price of $10.00.

Many bed and breakfast Inns have special deals for area visitors to the city during the fesival. Avenue Inn offers a 10% discount from its posted website rates.

    This same weekend New Orleans Museum of Art is hosting a spoken-word artist, Shelton “Shakespear” Alexander. He was featured in Spike Lee’s documentary When the Levees Broke and Russell Simmon’s Def Poetry Jam.

    The event will be Sunday Oct. 5 at 2 p.m. The performance is free with Museum admission.
