About this project

Catalogue is a free city map of New Orleans that plots art galleries and institutions with an accompanying cohesive bi-monthly gallery guide listing.

The purpose of Catalogue is to unify galleries and institutions spread throughout the city, helping locals and visitors alike to venture out with something portable and informative about openings around town.  To date, there has not been anything like this- and with so much energy in the arts, Prospect.2 and the ever-growing number of galleries, it stands to reason our city can support such a program.

Catalogue will democratically list galleries and institutions and include venues within the entire city, not solely in sanctioned arts districts. Each new edition will also include an accompanying essay relating to the New Orleans arts community.

Our design and concept was inspired by international arts listing guides, and will give visitors and tourists a comprehensive, accessible, and easy-to-use free visual arts guide that lists and celebrates all galleries and institutions in our city. And it even folds up an fits into one's pocket.


The initial run for the September/October Catalogue will be 3,000 full color guides distributed in art spaces, businesses, and other points of interest citywide. Catalogue will be edited and re-distributed every 2 months. 


We are not charging a fee to be included in Catalogue because we believe the information we list is public knowledge and should be accessible for all who are interested and all who wish to share their exhibitions. We are also volunteering our design, cartography, administrative, and distribution efforts to get Catalogue out into the world. Therefore, your funding will help pay for 6 months of printing Catalogue. Any funds that we collect above our goal will help pay for printing the next 6 months.

Oh, and here are a few images from our Rewards Program on the Right.
