All ages are welcome at this adorable alternative to downtown debauchery. For The Art and Design of Mardi Gras exhibition, we are plotting our very own mischief and revelry, Order of Muses style. Spend the morning decorating cardboard floats and then join the parade led by the Excelsior Band.
The afternoon is filled with hands-on learning, so grab lunch from Geaux Boy food truck and stick around for an artist talk from artist Dixon Stetler, creator of the exhibition’s grand entrance, who is also giving a free weaving workshop at 2:30 pm.
