What: In 2012, creative writer and professor Alison Barker launched NOLA Studiola, a blog that has forged a digital platform through which artists of various mediums collaborate in monthly guest curatorships. The ultimate gal, Barker says, has always been to build and support a local, artistic community by asking curators to explore central themes of place and process.
