On Saturday,January 13, 2007, 4:00-8:00 pm, for one night only, the second installment of the “Neighborhoods” art installation project will be held at 1508 Crescent Street, Gentilly.

“NEIGHBORHOODS: 1508 CRESCENT STREET” is a site-specific, multidisciplinary installation that will take place in the gutted home of Belinda Tanno, an artist who is currently rebuilding her house and studio in Gentilly. Through the use of interviews with neighbors, soundscapes, live music, drawing, photography, and sculpture, this event will confront the range of issues the community is experiencing as they revitalize this neighborhood.

This program is supported by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development,Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council as administered by the Arts Council of New Orleans.
