Queens of New Orleans

Ace Hotel New Orleans

2017 RETAIL CALENDAR


These pages cannont contain the full breadth of potent, influential, magnificent women in this city; it is impossible to create a comprehensive, fully inclusive list with only 12 months. Rather, these are the living, breathing queens who resonated with the creative youth in our design sutdio in the month of October, the year 2016, on the corner of Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard and Terpsichore Street. Some you know; they have earned a public title of “Queen.” Others are the personal queens of our studio members, their families, and communities. Many are mothers, caretakers, advocates - mighty and too often minimized roles traditionally held by women in our society. We celebrate them and a future where women, girls, and all who identify in between have all the power and choice they desire.

Blights Out for President

Blights Out

HUMAN AND HOUSING RIGHTS CAMPAIGN




 Blights Out is a collective of citizens, artists, activists, and architects daring to design a new model for development that generates dialogue, art, and action to challenge blight, displacement, and gentrification.  We created yard signs, a billboard and bumper sticker that transform campaign aesthetics and depict demand-based slogans written by local spoken word artists, distilled from community visioning sessions.
