Surreal Salon 7: A Parade for Pop Surrealism With a Side of Southern Comfort
Barbecue, Bourbon Street and the Blues—we’ve covered Louisiana, right? Wade a little deeper into the Bayou, though, and you just might wander into something very Southern and very surreal, as in, the Surreal Salon, which just exulted its seventh salute of all permutations pop and lowbrow. What started out as one night featuring local artists has grown into a festival offering the region’s hospitality to art lovers of every age and background. This year, interactive was more than an adjective, as attendees played in the funhouse installation by artist collective Elevator Projects. The puppets of Quintron and Miss Pussycat cavorted amidst the electronic music of RAV3N, and of course, everyone was in costume, and hurray for homemade!
