Launch Party for New Orleans Arts Rag

June 3, 2022 • 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us Friday, June 3rd at 6 pm to celebrate the launch of the New Orleans Arts Rag, featuring performances by Guts Club and War Bunnies.

This event is free to attend. Issues will be available for purchase at the event for $20.

This 96-page, slim, full color, perfect bound paperback is Volume 1 in a new series showcasing Louisiana artists, musicians, and poets. We are a small batch, high resolution, collectible arts journal that focuses on in-depth, conversational interviews with talented, established Louisiana-based creators. Each of our artists speaks with sincerity, heart, and candor about their life and their art. We strive to cover a swath of culture that is representative of this wildly inventive state: from Jazz to Zydeco, Bounce to Western, Soul to Classical, HipHop to Punk, Swamp Rock to Singer-SongwriterAs a multilingual state, we will also present a section of our writing in local dialects. Join us on the journey. Asteur, allons danser!
