Creole Aesthetics in Carnival Arts
Bruce Sunpie Barnes, Big Chief of the Northside Skull and Bone Gang, will host a conversation with his second chief, Zohar Israel, and two chiefs of downtown Mardi Gras Indian tribes: Clarence Dalcour of the Creole Osceola and Donald "Dut" Claude of the Seventh Ward Warriors. These long-time friends and collaborators will share songs and artwork as they tell stories about the Sixth and Seventh Ward masking traditions that inspired their work.
