FORESTival: A Celebration of Art and Nature
November 13 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
FORESTival is back! Join us at A Studio in the Woods on Saturday, November 13, 2021, 11am – 5pm for our 11th annual celebration of art and nature.
We are thrilled to welcome our community back to the Woods after a year and a half apart. Time in nature, time together, and time spent engaging with art and music are what our souls need right now. We are excited to provide that in a spacious, safe and beautiful outdoor setting.
- Music will be provided by The Soul Rebels, Dr. Michael White & Sidiki Conde, and kei slaughter.
- Artistic presentations by residents and guest artists including Brandon Ballengée, ChE, Jeffery Darensbourg, Jane Hill, Andy Horowitz, MILAGROS, Monique Moss, Ripple Effect, and Titos Sompa.
- Food by 12 Seasons Catering, Big O’s Original Pops, Chicken’s Kitchen, Faubourg Farms, and more.
- Art activities for kids and kids-at-heart alike.
- Walks in the Woods with Tulane University scientists.
- Silent auction of one-of-a-kind art objects and experiences.
This year, FORESTival celebrates the 20th anniversary of A Studio in the Woods, which has supported over 200 artists and scholars in its first two decades.
