"Marigny Board", this is a reminder for

Title: NoLA Rising Paint Party
Time: Sat Jul 26, 2008 (Timezone: Central Time)
Where: XO Studios - 2833 Dauphine Street in the Marigny
Calendar: "Marigny Board"
Description: Drawing by G*Rat

Who? Anyone interested in being a member of a community and perhaps 
would like to paint

What? A Paint Party. We come out and we paint on  salvaged wood or 
canvas.  Then, it's left behind and NoLA Rising distributes it out to a 
network of non-profits or people who just need artwork after their long 
road home.  We're currently working  to use all of this artwork to sell 
at a show to buy art supplies for selected New Orleans public schools.  
So, come help us help someone else.

So, grab some acrylic paint at your locally owned art store (National 
Art & Hobby at 5835 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA 70115, (504) 
899-4491 has always been very good to NoLA Rising) and come and join 
us.  We have some paint, but we usually also rely on donations.  Also, 
still working on your house and have scrap wood...bring it too!

When? Saturday, July 26th, from noon until sunset.  Yep, the dog days 
of summer.  No one said living in New Orleans during the summer is nice.

Where? XO Studios in the Marigny.  2833 Dauphine at the corner of Press 
(right where the train tracks are)

Why?  Why not?  We love our community, we love to paint, we love to be 
a part of something that is uniquely New Orleans.  You don't have to be 
an artist to come and join us.  In fact, most of the best talents we've 
discovered had never even picked up a brush in their entire life.

But if you resist, we have evening plans scheduled too.  For those of 
you that make it out to the paint party, go home and shower first, you 
stinky freaks!  The rest of you, here's an event that is important to 
the New Orleans spirit of community...see the following:
