Held at the elegant home of Andrew and Susu Stall in the Garden District, this year’s “Cocktails for KID smART” honored celebrated artist Adrian Deckbar for her mixed media pieces of Louisiana swamps. Though a native New Orleanian, Deckbar’s work has been featured in over 50 exhibitions all over the globe.

KID smART is an organization that seeks to promote local education through arts integration, with strategies such as long-term teaching artist residencies in local public school classrooms and a multi-component professional development program for classroom teachers.

Chaired by Joanie Quinlan and the “Cocktails for KID smART” event committee, cuisine was provided by Joel Catering and Event Planning and spirits by the Sazerac Company.

The evening’s patron party for sponsors was held earlier in the evening with cocktails, and included a presentation of a signed and numbered giclée of a work by Adrian Deckbar for each sponsor.
