This event has been postponed due to the pandemic. Please do call us at 504-899-7323 to order a copy of NEW ORLEANS: MURALS, STREET ART, GRAFFITI.

Join us when Kady Yellow presents and signs NEW ORLEANS: MURALS, STREET ART, GRAFFITI (Volumer 1).

This book looks at how this ephemeral art form has adorned the streets of New Orleans—coming and going—and shares the context of the murals, tags, wheatpastes, slap-ups, and masterpieces in the Marigny/Bywater. A first of its kind, this full-color, large-format, hardcover book documents New Orleans street art, featuring 70 artists. Includes never-before-told stories featuring local art history and over 162 gorgeous pages with photographs of the artists and their works. Proceeds to go towards organizing mural programming.

Kady Yellow has devoted her life during the past ten years to organizing, promoting, and advocating for (and once creating) murals, public art, street art, and graffiti using her free time. She moved to New Orleans in 2015 after teaching an undergraduate class on the subject matter through the State University of New York. During her first few years in New Orleans, she learned the art of buying and selling art from a seasoned veteran "Gallerist" on Royal Street. While working at the gallery she enrolled in grad school, recently earning an M.A. in Arts Administration from the University of New Orleans. While in school and working with a supportive team at the gallery, she started this unique art project to create the book.
