Arts District New Orleans (ADNO) is pleased to announce the return of Jammin' on Julia, a Spring art walk + music festival hybrid event in the district. Jammin' coincides with the First Saturday gallery openings on May 1ST, from 12-7PM. In lieu of the traditional evening art openings and street closure for the festival, the district welcomes patrons to an all-day rolling event featuring world class art exhibitions along Julia Street and the surrounding area, with musical performances in select galleries. The event is free and open to the public and is a perfect opportunity to stroll through the historic Arts District and discover New Orleans’ contemporary art, music, and cuisine. With the safety of our patrons in mind, social distancing and masks are mandated in the galleries.
Guests are invited to enjoy art, live music, libations, and an online auction. Patrons who visit may enjoy not only the art and music, but are invited to experience the varied and delicious cuisine offered by the many restaurants in the area. Musical performances by local musicians will take place in LeMieux Gallery, JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY, Arthur Roger Gallery, Callan Contemporary, Ariodante, Octavia Art Gallery, Martine Chaisson Gallery, and SPILLMAN | BLACKWELL Fine Art. A map/gallery guide with music schedule may be picked up at any participating gallery courtesy of VenueApp ( learn more at www.venueapp.com).
Additional elements of the event include the fourth ADNO LIVE! online art auction (live.artsdistrictneworleans.com) featuring items from our member galleries, giving patrons the opportunity to acquire works of art for personal or corporate collections, in some cases at a price well below gallery retail. In conjunction with Jammin’ Arts Council and The Helis Foundation celebrate the official unveiling of “You Are What You Eat” a mural by artist Jessica Strahan from 3 - 5 PM, at Legacy Park (730 Baronne St.) in partnership with Downtown Development District, International High School of New Orleans, and New Orleans Arts District. This event will feature a youth arts showcase, music by DJ Gamma Bloom and mini farmers market featuring Paradigm Gardens and Farm to Funk Ferments.
