Press Street is an interdisciplinary arts collective whose mission is to engage the community with thought-provoking exhibitions, publications, arts education, and events. An all-volunteer group of local artists, writers, filmmakers, and curators committed to high-quality original programming, Press Street opened in 2008 Antenna, one of only a handful of nonprofit spaces for exhibiting contemporary visual art in New Orleans. In addition to monthly exhibitions, Press Street|Antenna hosts a range of talks, readings, film screenings, and workshops.
