SATURDAY, MAY 21, 2016
NEW ORLEANS CENTER FOR CREATIVE ARTS
CHEVRON FORUM, 5 Press Street, NOLA 70117
6:30PM - MIDNIGHT
This year's ART&SOUL gala features the theme "Home Is Where The Art Is", and accordingly, it will welcome home a host of alumni, who'll entertain you with outstanding performances all night long. As usual, ART&SOUL will also feature great food from local restaurants and one of the city's best auctions.
ART&SOUL will be held on a Saturday - May 21, to be exact - and we're adding a late-night party for night owls, younger alumni, and friends of NOCCA. The event is co-chaired by Celeste Marshall and Calvin Johnson Jr., and the schedule is as follows:
PATRON PARTY: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Tickets: from $250
The Patron Party features performances by Calvin Johnson Jr. and Roxie le Rouge, a special Patron Party buffet, and open bars throughout the building. Patrons also get a first look at dozens of silent auction items up for bid, including artwork, vacation packages, gift certificates to local restaurants, and much, much more. Patrons are encouraged to stay for the ART&SOUL Gala and the Twilight party, too - including the live auction, which features a week-long stay in Tuscany and spectacular jewelry from Ramsey's.
ART&SOUL GALA: 8:00pm - midnight
The ART&SOUL Gala features performances by NOCCA students and by Sweet Crude (including NOCCA alum and The Voice contestant Alexis Marceaux). You'll enjoy food from your favorite local restaurants, including Brigtsen's and Press Street Station. Guests will also have access to open bars, as well as the silent and live auction.
TWILIGHT PARTY: 9:00pm - midnight
Revelers will enjoy a rockin' performance by Big Sam's Funky Nation, plus special late-night eats in Press Street Station.
