Off The Grid, An Exhibition by Where Y'art

 Gallery Exhibition. April 2019 to July 2019,  The Old No. 77 Hotel, New Orleans, Louisiana

“Off the Grid” explores the uncommon, the unmeasured, the surreal; a counterbalance to what you think you already know about New Orleans. It is an invitation to connect and experience New Orleans beyond the superficial and explore the City at it’s rawest level. Get to the know the stories behind the people, places and sentiment that shape the New Orleans. Dare to discover something new; something personal. It’s the network of experiences that define our culture and connect us to each other. It’s what unites us as a community. Your road map awaits.

The photograph titled "The Pause" was also displayed during a WWL TV interview with Cat Todd and Collin Ferguson of Where Y'art. Link to interview:
