In the artist’s words:
When Channing Tatum’s mom invites you (and 20 of your favorite church lady friends) to join her for lunch at her son’s restaurant, Saints & Sinners, how can your response be anything but “laissez les bons temps roulez”? Great food and service met a great company of women in an environment that reflects French Quarter New Orleans moving forward post Katrina while celebrating Storyville, the famous bordello of 100 years ago. We enjoyed, as advertised, a “heavenly company and a sinfully good time.”
I met his parents a couple of years ago. They had recently moved to the New Orleans area. We are on the same volunteer team at a local feeding ministry. They are certainly an asset to our community, and Channing Tatum’s restaurant, Saints & Sinners, is a bright new spot on Bourbon Street.
My art work generally focuses on places that I not only find visually interesting, but also resonate personally for me. Participating in Hope for Habitat: Katrina X offered me the opportunity to support the amazing work of East St Tammany Habitat for Humanity. I could not pass it up.
This project, Channing Tatum and his New Orleans restaurant seemed like a match made in heaven – even for a little old sinner like me.
