Art Home New Orleans is a program from the Creative Alliance of New Orleans that introduces participants to the depth and quality of art collectors in New Orleans. On November 19th and 20th from 12 to 5.30pm, selected homes will open up to the public to exhibit their local collections. Art Home’s true mission is to have art collectors educate participants on the individuality of art collections and encourage them to go one step beyond appreciation, to the actual purchase of art.CANO has also paired young professionals with some of these emerging artists by staging pop up exhibitions of affordable artwork for sale. Art Home New Orleans ticket holders can also attend a lecture November 19th at 11am led by New Orleans' most knowledgeable curators, collectors, and art dealers. CANO has designed the series to explore local trends in art, demystify the practice of art collecting, and inspire confidence in a new generation of local collectors and arts patrons.
