Old Prieur Project

Artist: Willie Birch
New Orleans, LA

This project is about the idea of art being used as a tool for community and cultural empowerment. In 2015, Wille Birch and his partner purchased a large property on Old Prieur Street in a historical Seventh Ward neighborhood called A.P. Tureaud. Using the architecture of the space, writing, video, photography, drawing, painting, and public programs, Old Prieur Project aims to help preserve the richness of this historical community.
