We LOVE first Wednesdays! Our February Downtown Artwalk is coming together in a BIG way. It will roll on Wednesday, Feb. 6 from 5-8 p.m. Here’s a taste of what you will see-

ARTSPACE– 708 Texas- Two exhibits- On the Margins by Ben Moss & Jeormie Journell and Seizing the Light by Tamara Robertson. Music by Twang Darkly, and Theatre School of Dance performances throughout the evening. Also at artspace, artists Kegan Kidd, Lisandra DiLiberto Brown, and Paige Powell. Pick up fun Mardi Gras items at Louisiana Specialty Products and try the ice cream and special Valentine’s treats by Sweetport.


Parish Taceaux– 708 Texas. Stop by PT for some ‘artful’ food and beverage offerings! For the night, they will feature a special General Tso Taceaux and King Cake Daiquiri.  We don’t know what ingredients are in either but they both surely do sound good.
