Third Annual Art Home New Orleans Tour of the Most Exciting Artist Studios and Private Art Collections in New Orleans

Art Home New Orleans is once again opening doors to the city's elegant and eclectic homes and studios for the 3rd Annual weekend of tours presented by the Creative Alliance of New Orleans, (CANO). This is one of the nation's largest tours, this year of over 40 homes and studios.

What: Art Home New Orleans is an annual self-guided public tour, this year on November 3rd and 4th from 12-5pm. The tour highlights emerging artists as well as works in private art collections. One participant said of last year's tour: "You can go to galleries and museums anytime, but to meet the artists and see the art in private collections brings out the essence of the city."

When and Where: The tour includes homes and studios citywide on Saturday, November 3rd and in the Lower 9th Ward on Sunday, November 4th, from 12pm to 5pm on both days. Some of the artists included this year are Prospect.2's Bruce Davenport Jr., blacksmith Rachel David, painter Nicole Charbonnet, sculptor, Clifton Webb, photographers Kevin Kline, and Christopher Porche West, the home of Enrique Alferez's daughter Tlaloc Alferez and many more!

Also enjoy "wrap parties" at the end of the tours at Casa Borrega, 1719 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard at 5pm on Saturday, and at the Art House on the Levee, 4725 Dauphine Street, at 5pm on Sunday night.

How: With the purchase of tickets, tour participants receive a map that guides them through the city visiting these vibrant, private locations. Tickets are $15/day and $25/weekend. Student tickets are $10/day. To purchase tickets, please visit  arthome2012.eventbrite.com or call 504.218.4807. See a video of last year's tour here.

Why:  The current New Orleans cultural scene is now characterized by unprecedented innovation and collaboration.  CANO wants to make this new scene and work more accessible to visitors and residents alike. Art Home New Orleans  (1) Enriches the New Orleans cultural experience of visitors and residents and broadens their understanding of the city's rich cultural legacy and new artistic offerings, encouraging repeat visits; (2) showcases the work of New Orleans based artists of all disciplines in visual, design, media, performing and culinary arts; and (3) helps demystify the "art" of collecting, encouraging the collection of the art works of area artists.

Who: Creative Alliance of New Orleans in partnership with artists and art collectors throughout New Orleans. CANO's mission is to provide training, education, and information for creative artists, cultural producers and the community, to protect our cultural legacy and to promote the revitalization of the city as a cultural and economic center.

We also offer custom tours. For questions regarding booking a private tour, email Tori Bush at bush@cano-la.org or call 504.218.4807.
