Belle ReveBelle ReveBelle ReveBelle Reve










Featuring artwork created by the Belle Reve community under the instruction of local artist, Mike Kilgore.

Artfully AWARE will take over the New Orleans Museum of Art for a special event. For a night that will celebrate the rich diversity of New Orleans, children and adults from across the community and the world have contributed artwork and creative writing that will be displayed in the Great Hall and surrounding galleries. The evening begins with a performance by the Mardi Gras Indian tribe, the Guardians of the Flame. Michael Watson, the musical director of Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse, will play with a four-piece band, and the New Orleans Dance Collective will perform an inspiring dance piece based on unity.

Visitors can interact with professional writers and artists from A Studio in the Woods, catch a literary reading organized by the Pirate's Alley Faulkner Society, listen to original poetry and prose read by students from the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, view photography that reflects the Sierra Club's local environmental efforts, hear speakers from the Young Leadership Council and watch short films selected by FosterBear Films that explore the vital role of the arts.

Interactive exhibition of works by Gustavo Duque:
"This project has been long and painful. It has been the work of four years researching cruelty of man in diverse manifestations: genocide, concentration camps, kidnapping, guerrilla warfare, terrorism and torture among others. A world of horror without an end. The main reasons for this project are my need to express a reality and a wish to create hope for us so we can live without violence and in peace."
