The Wetlands Art Tour features art, film, fashion and more at 20 venues in Faubourg Marigny and Bywater Saturday, and there are events throughout the day. The project is designed to call attention to coastal erosion and preservation issues. The event is headquartered at Clouet Gardens (710 Clouet St.), where there is information, food, kids' activities and more. A bike tour to Bayou Bienvenue departs from the garden at 9 a.m., and at 6:15 p.m., Sarah Quintana performs. There's a panel of speakers at the Marigny Opera House (725 St. Ferdinand St.) from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and it includes historian John Barry, author of Rising Tide and one of the main proponents of the South Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East's lawsuit against 97 oil and gas companies for dam age to wetlands. Also speaking are Tulane University law professor Mark Davis, poet Moose Jackson and others. Many of the art shows are at galleries participating in St. Claude Arts District opening receptions from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (Elegy on the Morning Water by Richard Waller pictured). There's a party beginning at 10 p.m. at Michalopoulos Studio (527 Elysian Fields Ave.), with music by Soul Creole featuring Louis Michot of the Lost Bayou Ramblers. — WILL COVIELLO
