A nice collection of modernish southern art, heavy on the impressionist influenced work of Louisiana artists. Loved the special exhibits "Precise Vision," "Salazar: Portraits of Influence," and Doris Ulmann: fromt eh Lowlands tot eh Highlands."

New Orleans has a great art and museum district near our hotel. Right across from the World Ward 2 museum is this excellent Ogden museum of Southern Art. Worth the trip.

Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district

ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
