Miriam Lilje

Co-working spaces are beginning to pop up all over the city, but few are tailor-made for artists. Atelier Mimi is a gallery and co-working space dedicated to promoting creative cross-pollination. In this installment of NolaVie’s occasional series, Conversations with Artists, Kelley Crawford invited founder and visual artist Miriam Lilje into the studio to talk about how she conceptualizes space in art and life.

We’re deep in the dog days of summer, and only in New Orleans would that be an excuse for a party. On the first Saturday in August, some 30,000 people will deck themselves in white attire and hit Julia Street for the 25th annual White Linen Night. It’s a block party to end all block parties, and NolaVie’s Renée Peck invited Laura Tennyson, Associate Director of External Affairs at the Contemporary Arts Center, to WWNO for a preview. 

 

Glitter Box

“The future is female.” We have heard these words and seen them written on t-shirts, but what does it mean? Alice McGillicuddy has some insight. She manages and curates a shop called Glitter Box. The space is run by females, stocked with goods made by female artists, and is linked up with nonprofits that support females. NolaVie’s Kelley Crawford speaks with Alice to learn more.
