If you are feeling helpless and overwhelmed with the destruction of our way of life here in Louisiana, please feel free to join in any of these artistic community events to restore your soul. Art may be the only thing that saves us; certainly BP, the Army Corps and the Federal Gov't will not.
Arts Education Panel:
"Please join us at The Front , 4100 St Claude St. New Orleans, on Thursday, May 27th @ 6:30 pm for the second installment of Back Talk at the Front. This month's discussion is on the topic of Arts Education in the Greater New Orleans Area. Facilitating this discussion will be a panel of arts educators from public, private, high school, grade school, university level, and extracurricular institutions. As our arts community enjoys this period of growth, we must be diligent in our support of every available opportunity to expose students to The Arts. On the 27th, we will explore some of these current opportunities, address some of the needs not being met, and discuss what can be done in the face of an ever-shrinking budget. As always, audience participation is welcomed, and everyone is invited to add to the conversation.
Back Talk at The Front is a series of monthly lectures, brought to you by The Front, focusing on topics important to the cultural community of New Orleans. This series is free and open to the public. Please stay tuned each month for more information on Back Talk."

New Photography Exhibit at NOMA:
NOMA presents the exhibition The Therapist: Photographs by Donald Woodman from May 22 through July 11. The exhibition consists of sixty-one photographs spanning four-year period (1997-2001) during which Woodman photographed his therapist, Dr. Donald Fineberg in Santa Fe, at the beginning of each of their sessions together. Says Woodman, "The relationship between therapist and patient served as a vehicle for exploring interpersonal relationships and personal identity. The images reflect both the tenor of the session and the emotions of the moment ranging from humor to pathos."
