After a recent attack by local GRAY GANGSTA over NoLA Rising art pieces, neighborhood activists Kyle and Alicia decided to take charge.

“There was just so much grey in the neighborhood. It was so ugly,” Alicia said.

“Yeah, I never realized how much I liked the signs that Rex had put up until they were gone, said Kyle.

Done, taking it for granted and realizing how much they enjoyed the local color of their neighborhood, they went and bought paint and supplies to begin re-painting in the spirit of NoLA Rising.

Rex, when reached for an interview, commented “I was devastated when I seen that the GRAY GANGSTA (formerly the Grey Ghost) had targeted my street. There was little else painted. He even painted over paper signs that could have been easily removed…

“I think it’s great that people from the neighborhood care enough to go out and buy supplies for the project and get out and paint. The purpose of the whole project is to include people of all skill levels to paint for the enjoyment of their soul. To share their love for the city.”

Rex believes that through art, there can be healing. “Who hasn’t suffered some level of PTSD since the storm. With art, we can work out some of the emotions. Express ourselves in ways we might not ordinarily. I encourage it with everyone I meet, even those who say they can’t draw.”

Howdy All,

This Saturday, approximately at three o’clock, I will
open my courtyard for a day of painting and debauchery
(well, maybe just some imbibery). Bring your paint
and your favorite drink and paint signs to be posted
around New Orleans. Help New Orleanians feel good
about living in New Orleans again. All skill levels
welcome and open to join. Or just come by and hang
out… I like to think of it as a community art event

What spawned this party… a neighbor’s suggestion
after finding many of my NOLA RISING signs painted
grey by the recently renamed GRAY GANGSTA (formerly
known as Prince…I mean Grey Ghost). Those neighbors
actually came up with the idea that we should have a
party. So, if you support NOLA RISING and you want to
be a part of it…

NoLA Rising isn’t about me…it’s about all of us.
It’s about our city and it’s about feeling good about
being in our city… so come feel good … I can’t
guarantee the weather and I sure as hell won’t
guarantee my friends…but I will guarantee a good
time and a love of art and New Orleans
