Air Your Linens
Art lovers are in for a triple treat this month. White Linen Night gets things started Aug. 4 with gallery-goers canvassing the 300 through 700 blocks of Julia Street to see what’s new on the walls. Musicians perform in the street, while chefs and mixologists serve up edible art to the tony crowd from 5:30 to 9:30 pm; a ticketed arty after-party takes place at the Contemporary Arts Center (p. 40, shown). The next week Dirty
Linen Night takes over Royal Street with dozens of galleries between the 200 and 1000 blocks offering cool exhibits (and even cooler cocktails) Aug. 11 from 6 to 10 pm. Keeping with the theme, Filthy
Linen Night, spotlighting St. Claude Avenue spaces, follows Aug. 18 at 7 pm at the Art Garage (2231 St. Claude Ave). All events are free.
