New location, live performance bolster 4th annual Culture Collision

NEW ORLEANS - For one night only and under one roof, local arts lovers are invited to attend a celebration to kick off the 2012-2013 cultural season. Culture Collision 4 will be held on Wednesday, September 5, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., at Generations Hall, with an after-party in the Big Room featuring Ratty Scurvics from 8 to 10 p.m.

This unique event brings together more than 50 of New Orleans' cultural organizations for a one of a kind happy hour designed to encourage participation and involvement in the New Orleans art scene. Admission to the event is free, and parking is available for $10 in the Fulton Street Garage. Attendees will have the opportunity to scope out upcoming events, take advantage of exclusive ticket promotions, and meet like-minded arts lovers.

Over 1,700 people turned out for last year's event, and with the new, larger location, this year's Culture Collision is expected to generate an even greater turnout. All of the participating organizations will have tables located throughout the hall, local restaurants will provide complimentary light fare, and multiple cash bars will be on site. The event will also feature the musical stylings of DJ Matty, a favorite at local nightspots, including The Saint, Mimi's, and The Saturn Bar. Giveaways courtesy of participating organizations will be ongoing throughout the evening. The cash bars will remain open throughout the after-party, featuring the avant-garde award-winning composer, pianist and singer, Ratty Scurvics in the Big Room at 8 p.m., with his trio joining the performance at 9 p.m.

The event is hosted by WWNO, Sponsored by OffBeat, Generations Hall and Canary Collective. It is organized by the Arts Council of New Orleans, Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, Loyola University Montage Series, New Orleans Ballet Association, New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans Opera Association, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and Southern Rep.
