New Orleans has long been known to be irresistably alluring to many versatile and talented artists. The city's unique history, steeped in legend and arcane traditions, creates a romantic atmosphere and inspiration not found in any other American city.
Local artists--many of whom are nationally and internationally known--abound, along with many artists who were drawn to the city to capture its essence in a variety of media.
A prime example is the Jackson Square Artists Colony, a self-regulated group of artists who continue the longstanding tradition of the open-air art market at the historic Place d’Armes. Legend has it that the great artist and illustrator John James Audubon also found inspiration in this revered public square, surrounded by the lacelike wrought-iron balconies of the ancient Pontalba Apartments, in the shadow of a grand basilica, the St. Louis Cathedral.
You'll discover incomparable original paintings, photography, sculpture and other artwork while browsing distinctive shops on Royal Street and throughout the historic Vieux Carré, strolling along Magazine Street, or visiting the galleries, museums and studios of the Warehouse District. Or cross the mighty Mississippi River to marvel at the decorative float art that makes the city’s Mardi Gras a world-class celebration.
