“When I went to my first Super Sunday,” Solange Knowles said from the stage of a converted boxing gym Sunday (Oct. 26) night, “that was more inspiring than anything I ever saw in New York.”

Over the past year or so, while spending most of her time in New Orleans, Solange has been soaking up culture like the annual Mardi Gras Indian celebration, plus a lot more.

Her Prospect.3 party Sunday night was titled “Amen! Amen! 17 Wards of Wonder.” The party presented a mix of locally focused art both classic and contemporary, across disciplines — an old-school DJ set from Mannie Fresh, a Gulf Coast-inspired meal by Dinner Lab, and a party bus decorated by New Orleans native and Prospect artist Rashaad Newsome. That was combined with, in the form of performances from Kelis and the St. Louis-based electro/R&B singer SZA, Solange’s own style. Video pieces by Newsome and Tameka Norris rippled on huge white balloons in the corners of the room, and a quartet of portraits by Reuben Cheatem, depicting the night’s performers, stood propped on easels.
