An incubator for emerging artists. Artists in Residence

Believing in the creative magic that New Orleans inspires, the Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery’s Artist in Residence program invites an out-of-town artist to take up residence at the Warehouse Arts District hotel each summer during the month of July while the artist produces a collection of original works inspired by the Crescent City. Some of our artists in residence include:

KATE LEWIS

In 2017, Kate Lewis, a Chicago-based artist, resided at the hotel while capturing the historic structures of New Orleans through large-scale black-and-white illustrations.

THOMAS “TJ” KISER

In summer 2016, Thomas “TJ” Kiser, a student at the Art Institute of Chicago, debuted as our first Artist in Residence. During his stay, Kiser kept a journal with writings and sketches of the architecture, people and places that sparked his imagination.
