Come on DOWN to RIVERTOWN!!! Saturday, January 20th (5 - 8 PM)

The Kenner RIvertown Arts Council presents...
Down By The River: P.S. Satellite - A Project of Prospect New Orleans

The exhibition is a curated selection of art in various media that emphasizes our relationship with the water in which we live with every day. From the river to the lake, to the swamps and surrounding spillways, we are surrounded and connected. A selection of local artists interprets their personal interactions with the water involving topics such as life, meditation, peace, growth, healing, nourishment, recreation, mythology, satire, even fear and adventure. Just like the river, our lives are ever changing moving and connected to each other.  

The exhibition will include murals and a Pop Up art exhibition in the Kenner Rivertown Community Courtyard.

Artist/Curator Peter Barnitz on the inspiration for the exhibition...

"The face of the water, in time, became a wonderful painting--a painting that was a dead language to the uneducated passenger, but which told its mind to me without reserve, delivering its most cherished secrets as clearly as if it uttered them with voice.  And it was not a painting to be visited once and thrown aside, for it had a new story to tell every day"  (Mark Twain:  Life on the Mississippi)
