New York-based street artist Swoon (Caledonia Curry), whose large-scale wheat-pasted posters and prints have appeared in public places from as far as Europe to as close as Bywater, unveils her umbrella-like installation Thalassa at the New Orleans Museum of Art this week.
Swoon discusses her work at 6 p.m. tonight in the museum’s Stern Auditorium. (An afterparty hosted by New Orleans Airlift follows at 8 p.m. at 1029 Piety St.)
