Tonight’s reception runs from 5:30-9:30PM. Free admission and a cash bar, with a special performance from Quintron. If you can’t make it tonight, the exhibition, which is housed in NOMA’s second floor Frederick R. Weisman Gallery, will run through May 2, 2010.
Included in the exhibit: Hundreds of Miss Pussycat’s puppets, which span the length of her career. An interactive display of Quintron’s patented DRUM BUDDY sound machines. An installation of Quintron and his entire recording studio, where he will record a new album, working during museum business hours Wednesdays through Sundays. Members of the public will be invited to enter the recording studio and observe the artist at work.
During his final week of recording, from Wednesday, April 21 to Sunday, April 25, Quintron will not leave the confines of City Park for five consecutive days in order to concentrate fully on completing the project. Adding the final touches to his album by day, the artist will explore the “wilds” of the 1,300-acre urban park by night.
On a weekly basis Quintron will send audio updates (ambient and musical “snapshots” rather than finished recordings) to Open Sound New Orleans, which can then be accessed here.
