Evenings with Enrique Returns April 3 at the Botanical Garden

City Park Conservancy and The Helis Foundation announce the return of Evenings with Enrique at the New Orleans Botanical Garden starting April 3rd. Free for Louisiana residents courtesy of The Helis Foundation, Evenings with Enrique occurs every Wednesday in April and October at the New Orleans Botanical Garden. Visitors revel in the extended garden hours through 8pm while listening to the lively beats of some of the best local Latin American artists and ensembles among the Garden’s abundant landscape.

Launched in 2016, Evenings with Enrique is a bi-annual concert series held every April and October. The series pays tribute to renowned Mexican artist, Enrique Alférez who lived in New Orleans for almost 70 years and made a profound contribution to the New Orleans art scene. Alférez has over 20 works of art featured at The Helis Foundation Enrique Alférez Sculpture Garden inside the New Orleans Botanical Garden. His sculptures can also be found throughout New Orleans at Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans Museum of Art, Poydras Corridor Sculpture Exhibition and New Orleans City Park.

Admirers of Alférez’s work can purchase Enrique Alférez: Sculptor by Katie Bowler Young at the Botanical Garden giftshop. Published by The Historic New Orleans Collection, the book chronicles the life of the preeminent artist and was made possible with support from The Helis Foundation and members of The Historic New Orleans Collection’s 2019 Bienville Circle and Laussat Society.

Throughout the year, The Helis Foundation provides free admission on select days for Louisiana residents via its Art for All initiative to several of New Orleans most beloved cultural institutions including the New Orleans Botanical Garden, New Orleans Museum of Art, Contemporary Art Center New Orleans, Ogden Museum of Southern Art and Louisiana Childrens Museum.
