The Contemporary Arts Center has announced that it will require a proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test within 72 hours before hand for everyone looking to gain admission to its White Linen Night After Dark Party this Saturday.

The After Dark Party is a part of New Orleans's popular White Linen Night, which takes place Saturday, August 7 on the 300-600 blocks of Julia Street in the Warehouse District and will feature new exhibitions from 20 different art galleries within that block from 6 to 9 p.m. The after party is free, will take place from 9 p.m. to midnight at the CAC, located at 900 Camp St., and will feature beats by DJ RQ Away, food trucks, drinks, and more.

The CAC will enforce the State of Louisiana's mask mandate for indoor events, as well as the City of New Orleans's COVID-19 regulations for reduced capacity during the party. The center also encourages Louisiana residents who are attending to download the LA Wallet app, which is the state's digital license, because it allows residents to upload and display their proof of vaccination through the app. However, the CAC will also accept a valid vaccination card for admission.

While the proof of vaccination is required for the party, it is not required to view the CAC's exhibition, which will be on display during White Linen Night, titled "Behind Every Beautiful Thing: Encountering Bodies, Wrestling the Human Condition." However, masks will be required, capacity limits will be enforced, and social distancing is encouraged.

The After Dark Party is sold-out, but guests who have already RSVP'd for the event and can no longer make it are encouraged to contact the CAC at info@cacno.org and inform them. Walk up admissions will also be considered at the door after 9 p.m., depending on capacity.
