A few places and things that have caught our eye…

Look back on 2020 through the eyes of over 70 artists in the Arthur Roger Gallery’s latest exhibition “Art in the Time of Empathy.” Artists address the many aspects of quarantine, politics, and science in a time where physical distance has redefined these dialogues. The exhibition will be on view until December 19, 2020.

Scriptura’s newest custom Retro 51 Tornado is the perfect gesture for any Crescent City lover and writer. The New Orleans Streetcar Pen ($78) features the shop’s original illustration, black pinstripes, and satin gold trim. The pens are an exclusive edition.

While we wait for the bustling French Quarter to return, The Historic New Orleans Collection’s new exhibition might do the trick. “French Quarter Life: People and Places in the Vieux Carré” is on display now and includes 22 paintings that explore the streets, buildings, and people in the Quarter through time.

Support City Park through Ghosts in the Oaks: A Haunting at Home. Party packages containing lots of fun, local goodies and activities accommodate up to four people and can be picked up on October 24 and 25 at Reunion Shelter. Costumes are encouraged!
