A sprawling exhibition that captures three decades of New Orleans will be open one last weekend.
Art of the City: Postmodern to Post-Katrina is presented by The Helis Foundation and was the inaugural exhibition at The Historic New Orleans Collection's new Seignouret-Brulatour Building. It was also THNOC's first major contemporary art exhibition, replete with a robust programming series.
The exhibition shows the "diverse perspectives of artists reacting during three decades of strife and progress in the layered city that fueled their inspiration."
Guests can still visit Art of the City and its 75 works featured at 520 Royal Street, THNOC's new $38 million exhibition center. Admission is free, with a young audience tour Saturday, October 5th at 10 a.m. and self-guided tours starting at 11 a.m., Friday, October 4th through Sunday, October 6th. (Tours last approximately 30 minutes.)
