Student workshop series: Roots of Music + Bruce Davenport

Over the past several weeks, our education department has collaborated with the Roots of Music Crusaders, Prospect.2 artist Bruce Davenport, and the New Orleans Museum of Art in a series of workshops. The workshops focused on introducing the student musicians to Bruce's art, as well as making art with Bruce. Below are a few images from the art making workshop held last week at the Cabildo.

The completed 16-panel mural, created by Bruce Davenport and the Roots of Music Crusaders, will be unveiled at the New Orleans Museum of Art's 100th birthday party, this Saturday, December 17th. The Crusaders will perform at 11:00 AM, followed by a display of the mural in the Museum's Great Hall. Be sure not to miss this fun event in celebration of student art and one of New Orleans' most prized cultural institutions!
