“Great buildings that move the spirit have always been rare. In every case they are unique, poetic, products of the heart.” Global architect and advocate of cultural awareness, Arthur Erickson, may not have had a specific place in mind when he said this, but we all know New Orleans’ French Quarter is one of those places. We are lucky to have these unique, poetic, products of the heart at our fingertips. With your support, we will continue to expand and strengthen our projects and programming, like: the Vieux Carré Virtual Library, a Design Guideline update, the Quarterly Care Workshops, and Navigating the VCC. We will also continue to provide direct support to the Vieux Carré Commission and its staff. Everything we do is in the spirit of preserving and protecting our great neighborhood.
Unfortunately, this year, due to the ongoing issues with COVID-19, we are going to be unable to host our annual in-person gala. The safety of our members, supporters, staff, and board are our highest priority. This is usually the time of year we all come together to in a beautiful space and celebrate the French Quarter together. We will miss you all immensely, but we hope you will participate with us in spirit. We hope to see you all as soon as it’s safe.
