Celebrating Tina Girouard: Making Ordinary Extraordinary

/// May 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Ogden Museum, in partnership with The Neighborhood Story Project, welcomes the community to a free mouth-watering and soul-inspiring evening celebrating two places beloved to Tina Girouard – South Louisiana and Haiti. The evening will present an array of art, music, dance and food to both honor her and celebrate those connections.

  • Enjoy an opening blessing with Nana Sula Evans in collaboration with Kai Knight and Cultural Ties Dance Collective;
  • Dance to Afro-Louisiana and Caribbean songs with Sunpie and the Louisiana Sunspots, along with Leyla McCalla and Louis Michot’s journeys through Haitian folk and southwest Louisiana music;
  • Savor a complementary portion of roasted pig, inspired by the tradition of a Southern Pig Roast (While supplies last, additional food and drink will be available to purchase);
  • Participate in a beading demonstration by artist Black Masking Indian Marwan Pleasant and create a small beaded artwork of your own;
  • Try your hand at textile printing with ricRACK NOLA and add your work to a community installation utilizing repurposed fabrics

Free and open to the public. Advanced registration requested.
