Ashé Cultural Arts Center is an initiative of Efforts of Grace, Inc., a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3), organization that creates and supports programs, activities, and creative works emphasizing the contributions of people of African descent. Located in Central City New Orleans, the Center provides opportunities for art presentations, community development, artist support, and the creation of partnerships that amplify outreach and support efforts.



Ashé Cultural Arts Center (Ashé) is delighted to announce the third annual Redd Linen Night, curated by Charlie Johnson.  This fabulous event takes place on Saturday, March 28, 2015, from 6-10 p.m., at the center at 1724 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in New Orleans.  It will be a night of extraordinary art and magnificent performances.


Look forward to seeing the work of artists Ed Brown, Myesha Francis Agwe, Rickey Henry, Henry Jones, Richard Keller, Cecelia Tapplette-Pedescleaux, Elise Bellard-Russell, Alma Bryan Powel, Mr. Natescott, Amy Bryan, and more.  Accompanying these incredible artists will be performances in dance, spoken word, music, and more.


This fundraiser is a celebration of Redd’s life and visual art work which has been described as the pivotal graphic influence for many of the African, African American and Caribbean programs and events held in New Orleans as far back as 1970s.  As such, this accomplished graphic artist, sculptor, print maker and jeweler, would have wanted to see his ultimate work, Ashé Cultural Arts Center, sustained. 


Add to the excitement. Wear something red!
