I have a new article up at Pelican Bomb, a small tour of the artwork at A Studio in the Woods. For those in the New Orleans area, the current resident, Roy Staab, is seeking help volunteering this coming Monday (December 12) installing his latest work, Chaise Ile, at Bayou Bienvenue in the Lower Ninth Ward — contact the Studio for more information. The unveiling of the work will take place next Saturday, December 17, at the corner of Caffin and Florida Avenue, from 2-4pm.
Speaking of unveilings, the new Mid-City branch of Maple Street Bookshop is now open, a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Adjacent to a grocery store, a wine shop, and a coffee house, that intersection has everything anyone could possibly need.
