Photos Before I Left

Before I finished I stopped to hear band in front of Le Mieux Gallery.
A giant puppet from “Fantastic Mr. Fox” was there too. Two people animated the puppet.

Art for Art's Sake 2010

On my way back to my car there were a lot more people on Julia Street for “Art for Art’s Sake.” Here are some crowd shots. Lights were used to illuminate food booths and bar islands. Each block had some kind of musical entertainment.

Cut Yourself Some Slack

"Cut Yourself Some Slack" is exactly what the sign wanted you to do at this table. There was a ball of twine and a scissors. Anyway, I was a mused enough to take this photo.


Artists Marcus Brown, Zac Manuel and Nathan Weidenhaft participated in an interactive installation known as “Tunnel.” As people walked through the tunnel, motion detectors triggered samples of sounds and music. Here are a few photos from the installation.

Deep Horizon Response in the Dark

Here are some photos of people writing on the oil barrels at night. The pink and blue lights provided a different atmosphere from earlier in the evening. Participation continued throughout the night.

Deep Horizon Response

Here are some more shots from the oil barrel installation. Later on, pink and blue lights lit up the barrels as people continued to write on them. I enjoy participatory art.

Mitchell Gaudet

Last summer Mitchell Gaudet created an installation of oil barrels that was displayed at Longue Vue Gardens. It was called “Deep Horizon Response.” Later on the installation was on view on Julia Street during the October art event, “Art for Art’s Sake.” This time, however, there was a new twist. Observers were given sidewalk chalk to draw on the barrels. I photographed some of the more interesting writings/drawings.

When I arrived at this shelter I had walked full circle in the park. I was tired and sunburned by then. And so, these last photos conclude my journey in City Park.

Cypress Stumps

Once past the second bridge, I approached the area where my journey started. I could see the shelter in the distance. A grouping of cypress stumps grabbed my interest before I continued.
