Visual Art Initiatives in the St. Roch Neighborhood: The SRCC Artist Residency and Staple Goods

BY AARON COLLIER
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2013

Historically, New Orleans has been a city that nourishes and generates creativity amongst artists who stop in, stay for a period, or call it home.  The artist residency at St. Roch Community Church, as well as the collective and gallery space entitled Staple Goods, both aim to further galvanize the St. Roch and St. Claude neighborhoods of New Orleans in keeping such tradition.  Aaron Collier coordinated the inception of both of these enterprises with the sole intention of providing artists with opportunities in a neighborhood that has been, and continues to be, a gift to him and his family.

He has spent the past few years creating art in public and bringing visual excellence to the most bizarre locations. From construction sites to the office place, Blue has been hired all over the east coast to talk with and engage with people as he creates his works; thus, allowing people of any class, race or creed to feel a genuine connection with artists.
