Keeping their Story Alive//The Upstairs Lounge Tragedy

Art Klub will be hosting an Open Studio preceding St. Claude Second Saturdays to display the work of our current Artist-in-Residence, Peter Mallen.

During the month that he has been here, Mallen has created a body of work commemorating the lives lost during the Upstairs Lounge Fire in 1973. He is using a print transfer process to create these works on paper, pulling inspiration from Robert Rauschenberg's Earth Day Posters.

Come meet the artist and view this poignant body of work that pays homage to the tragedy that affected the New Orleans LGBTQ community.
