Read columnist and photographer Steven Forster’s coverage of New Orleans’ social events at The New Orleans Advocate.

Events featured in this edition:

Drafts for Crafts: The National WWII Museum launched Drafts for Crafts, a fundraiser held in the Freedom Pavilion of the Museum to benefit restoration of World War II artifacts. The event included entertainment by Flow Tribe and the Roots of Music, and a special viewing of the PT-305 boat being restored in the nearby Kushner Restoration Pavilion.

Body Electric: Models, dancers and circus performers were a living canvas for painters who specialize in body art at the Flesh Art Show at One Eyed Jacks in the French Quarter last month. Lushly colored performers gave two shows, helping to raise money for medical care for artists via the nonprofit ArtDocs.

Ampersand's Last Stand: Tiesto, a Dutch musician, DJ and record producer, was the special guest at Ampersand’s Last Stand, marking the final days of the nightclub at 1100 Tulane Ave. in the Central Business District. The stylish club, housed in a former Whitney Bank, closed April 12, but not before throwing several blowout parties.
