A Second Line led by the Original Big 7 Social Aid and Pleasure Club
and Brass Band will commemorate the closing of Prospect.1 New Orleans
at the New Orleans Museum of Art on Saturday, January 17. The
procession begins at 1 p.m. in front of the Besthoff Sculpture Garden
and will make its way down Lelong Avenue before entering the Museum
and circling around the Great Hall and the McDermott Lobby, past the
work of New Orleans-based Prospect.1 artists Willie Birch and Victor
Harris and the Fi Yi Yi.

Admission to the Museum, including public programs, is free to all
through January 18.

Prospect.1 New Orleans, on view at 25 venues throughout the city, is
the largest contemporary art biennial ever staged in the United
States. The exhibition, which officially ends January 18, has received
rave reviews in national and international press.

"This is a chance to celebrate the extraordinary artists that made
Prospect.1 at the New Orleans Museum of Art such a success, especially
our locally based friends who stole the show, Willie Birch and Victor
Harris," said New Orleans Museum of Art director E. John Bullard.
"This historic biennial has significantly raised the profile of the
entire New Orleans art community, from emerging artists to major
institutions, and we are already eagerly anticipating Prospect.2 in
