One of the premiere fundraising events for New Orleans‘ Contemporary Arts Center, the 2013 Art for Arts’ Sake will take place on Saturday, October 5. Thousands of art lovers are expected to participate, visiting galleries both throughout Downtown’s Warehouse District and along a 5-mile stretch of Magazine Street. Adding to the evening’s ambiance, all along the route, cash bars and food vendors will be on-hand to cater to the attendees’ enjoyment.
Welcoming both casual aficionados and serious collectors, the expansive art show will feature a range of creative pieces, including paintings, sculptures, and installation works. With dress ranging from “casual to chic”, attendees can expect a fun, airy atmosphere, as they enjoy what will (hopefully) be a cool Autumn weekend.
In addition to the gallery shows, which will be open from 6-9p.m., attendees can also participate in a “special reception and party” until Midnight at the CAC’s headquarters on Camp Street. While free to CAC members, the event will cost $10 at-the-door for others.
The Contemporary Arts Center is “dedicated to the presentation, production and promotion of the art of our time.” Featuring local, regional, and global artists, the organization showcases a main museum, as well as special exhibitions throughout the city.
