Join Nathaniel Donnett and participating artists as they give a walking tour of the newsstand locations placed in valued locations in Third Ward for his Project/Site commission «What’s The New News.» Donnett will be accompanied by writers and artists involved in the project who will discuss their work as it relates to the history, culture, and situation of this community.

Issue 2
Participating writers include Michon Benson, Julia Brown, Theresa Escobedo, Jeremy Johnson, Josie Pickens, Dr. Andrea Roberts, and Laura A.L. Wellen. Artists designing the second set of newsstands: Nathaniel Donnett, Marlon Foster, Matt Manalo, Sofia Mekonnen, and Anthony Suber.

The tour area will cover the newsstands posted around Third Ward: Project Row Houses, Doshi House, S.H.A.P.E. Community Center, Crumbville TX, and the Third Ward Multi-Services Center.

Led by Donnett, «What’s The New News» is a collaboration amongst creatives and the community that speaks to the importance of the neighborhood, artists, writers, and literacy. It interrupts the everyday with the everyday by asking the community to rethink how objects, art, and information are involved in our daily lives. Newspaper racks will be transformed into public art and placed in important and valued locations within the community. The information presented for the public will take the form of articles, experimental writing, raps, and poetry.
