2nd Tuesdays at NOPA: Artist Perspective with Prof. AnnieLaurie Erickson
Tuesday, October 11 – 6:30 to 8:30 PM
Please join us for a special evening with Prof. AnnieLaurie Erickson in the NOPA Gallery. Prof. Erickson will discuss her creation of alternative modes of photographic production from interactive gallery installations using photography and eye tracking to the creation of images of radioactive residue from the first manmade nuclear reaction in 1942. This is thought-provoking and beautiful work from one of New Orleans’ most innovative artists.
