The driving force behind Art for Arts’ Sake is the philosophy that the value of art lies within the art itself and does not require any further justification. However, in light of the global and national strife that communities are facing during this current moment, we’ve decided to flip this event on its head and focus on the ability of art to nurture, to reflect, to speak, to inspire, and to heal. This year, we are promoting art for its ability to go beyond.
As part of Art Beyond Arts’ Sakes’ mission to highlight the power of art to transcend, galleries in the Arts District New Orleans have partnered with local charities and organizations and will be contributing a portion of their proceeds during the month of October to these organizations.
Art collectors and enthusiasts can learn more about the participating galleries and their partnered charities at www.artsdistrictneworleans.com/events. For more information on the featured exhibitions in the Arts District New Orleans for the month of October, you can visit the gallery websites linked on www.artsdistrictneworleans.com/galleries.
