The Untold Renaissance. This collection pays homage to 18th century textiles and tapestries while exploring the absence of persons of color in Medieval and Renaissance-era European art. Borrowing from the sampling method employed in hip hop culture, each reinvented piece tells an original narrative from the perspective of Africans who have been placed in an alien context. Through this reverse lens to the past, the present circumstances of individuals who feel displaced and alienated may also be considered. - www.ikirejones.com

Wearing brightly colored shirts, we bar hop as a group, enjoying some free food and exclusive drink specials throughout downtown New Orleans.
For the first time, we moved our revelry up a week and end our route near Bourbon for the French Quarter Fest. After enjoy free live music and festivities we continue on to one the best Bourbon Street clubs, Bourbon Heat, for the official Sunday Funday after party.
