"A Printer's Son: Some Notes on Being an Ink-Stained Wretch"
Attendees will have a day pass to public transporation in New Orleans.
Structure your day as you wish. A good plan would be to start with
the Cafe Du Monde, amble around in the French Quarter or head over to NOCCA
for the "DownRiver" exhibition. Saturday morning is a good time to take
the Ferry to Blaine Kern's Mardis Gras World, and then take the ferry back
to have a free lunch at the "New Orleans & Gulf Coast Printmakers Exhibition"
at the World Trade Center. You can then take the St. Charles Street
streetcar uptown to the Garden District for the tour, or onto the
Demographics Sessions at Tulane and Loyola Universities. The Arts District
will be a good place to be in the afternoon and early evening with steamroller
printing, New Orleans School of Glassworks and Printmaking and numerous
receptions. Cap of the night at Howlin Wolf with Nathan and the Zydeco
Cha Cha's. It will be a long, stimulating day. Bring your umbrella and
a good pair of walking shoes.

into the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood. The shuttle stops at NOCCA's front
door, 2800 Chartres Street at Press St. By car or cab you should
go straight down Decatur which merges into Elysian Fields (about 1 mile)
Turn right on Chartres (second right after Decatur turns to Elysian
Fields) and go down about 15 blocks.
9:30am - 4:30pm OPTIONAL EVENT ($9.50) Tour to Blain
