NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -The Krewe of Muses announced their honorary Muse for 2019.
Emmy-award winner Patricia Clarkson will serve as the honorary Muse and will lead the krewe’s 19th parade on February 28.
Clarkson will ride in the iconic shoe float.
Clarkson is the first honorary muse in the Krewe’s nineteen-year history to be honored twice - in 2012 and 2019.
She is a native of Algiers.
Clarkson’s career has spanned more than three decades.
Her most recent triumph was winning the Golden Globe and Critics' Choice Awards for the role of Adora in the 2018 HBO limited series “Sharp Objects.”
“Patricia Clarkson is the quintessential New Orleans girl and most deserving of leading the Muses for a historic second time. We are proud of her accomplishments then and now," said Muses Captain Staci Rosenberg. "The continuum of her professional work is the embodiment of the attributes and spirit of the nine muses. Patricia is an inspiration to women and girls.”
The Honorary Muse recognition project honors women who have proven themselves as role models to the women and girls of New Orleans.
