About this project

One of the iconic images of American Beauty products
One of the iconic images of American Beauty products

Help Preseve New Orleans History by investing in the Fresh Art Exhibit at  ArtEgg Studios, formerly a produce warehouse, brings to life the transition from industrial to cultural center.

ArtEgg was formerly the American Beauty Products Warehouse. Now a multi-use commercial building with tenants including musicians, artists, photographers, filmmakers, fine craftsmen, entrepreneurs, nonprofits and even an artisan distillery. Located in the South Broad Street Cultural Products District, the history of the ArtEgg warehouse is important since it documents the ongoing transition of an  industrial area into a vibrant cultural district.

The Exhibit traces NOLA's ArtEgg urbanization in photos, maps and drawings and includes an.Opening Reception.

ArtEgg Studios and local public historian, Laurel A. Dorrance is documenting the history of the property that ArtEgg Studios lies on to be compiled into a written history  We are looking to translate the written history into a visual exhibit to be installed at ArtEgg Studios.  The area, formerly an industrial corridor, has been designated as the South Broad Street Cultural Products District and this history helps redefine this new identity of the area and its revitalization as a cultural community.

As a backer, you'll be helping New Orleans document its history and be able to participate in a fun project that will sta yon display at ArtEgg Studios.on permanent display.  If you can't come to the opening reception as one of our backers, you can schedule a tour the next time you're in New Orleans - we'd love to welcome you! 

Risks and challenges

We're bold and we're scheduling to end around the time of the anniversary of Katrina - so one of our challenges in New Orleans is Hurricane Season - ArtEgg was devastated by the storm and had to be totally renovated- so we hope this is a mild hurricane season - but we can't control the weather. We can only hope that New Orleans isn't in the path of a big one- but we promise - we'll fulfill our commitments - we just might not be on time - ArtEgg's building has withstood and survived many storms in its history - come and learn more!

The bulk of this work has been completed iand most of the research is finished. The only potential obstacle would be problems in the printing of materials. We have built in the extra time needed to accommodate any delays in printing. Always leave a margin is our motto!
