Description

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Get ready... for the VELVET ROPE

E*X*P*E*R*I*E*N*C*E*

... where ALL guests are VIPs!

#VRE (The Velvet Rope Experience) is a PREMIERE pop-up visual arts showcase that infuses dope artistry, music, and red velvet-flavored eats, while paying homage to well-known music artists, bands or groups.

This second installment of #VRE will serve as a tribute to iconic Nola-based artists to include Rebirth Brass Band, Trombone Shorty, Lil’ Wayne, Juvenile, Mystikal, Baby, Mannie Fresh, Master P., DJ Jubilee, Big Freedia, August Alsina, Frank Ocean, PJ Morton, Tank and the Bangas, Pell, & more!

The artwork featured in this show will speak to the colorful and vibrant culture of New Orleans, which is known for their distinct music, creole cuisine, unique dialect, street murals, scenic landscapes, colorful architecture and annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras.
