Marigny Parade Opens Prospect.2

 

Lines of trombones, clarinets and snare drums on a sunny, Saturday afternoon generally mean it's time for a second line or a football game. But when four separate marching bands, all playing the same song, converge in one place? The Marigny Parade - a one time performance, future video art piece, and original musical composition -- also kicked-off Prospect.2, New Orleans' second, city-wide visual arts bienniale. I followed the parade and uncovered the story behind it.
