Extending its growing tradition of presenting the work of current artists of all disciplines in a fantasy setting for the benefit of its programs, CANO rethinks the creative spirit of the city's carnival traditions with new musical, theatrical, visual, and media elements that celebrate both the city's bacchanalian spirit and newly innovative drive.


The ball's theme this year, "Making New Orleans" was inspired by the just published book of the same name by graphic artist Phillip Collier. Collier's book illustratesNew Orleans' historic and current producers, manufacturers and artisans. Bal des Artistes will similarly present the work of artists, artisans and manufacturers in a unique Design Salon, in a creative silent auction, and in performances by new and recognized talent.

The evening of food, fun, and fantasy will be capped off by an after party Upstairs at the City Park Casino which will feature dancing to live and D.J. music and specially selected "Nightcaps".


CANO will use funds raised at Bal des Artistes to support its Creative Futures program that helps high school students learn about and pursue creative careers; to showcase work of New Orleans artists of all disciplines in its "Artists on View" online video directory; to promote collaboration and business opportunities for artists with its CANOpener networking meetings and forums; and to advocate for greater investment in the creative economy from public, business and non-profit sources.
