Ranging from 19th century Bayou School landscapes to contemporary abstract painting and sculpture, these exhibitions celebrate the depth and breadth of the Permanent Collection, including a strong selection of Southern Regionalism and Vernacular Art.
In conjunction with the Tricentennial celebration of New Orleans, Salazar: Portraits of Influence in Spanish New Orleans, 1785 - 1802 will tell the story of Yucatán-born Josef Francisco Xavier de Salazar y Mendoza (c. 1750-1802), whose career spanned most of the Spanish administration of New Orleans.
Drawing from both private and public collections, this exhibition tells the story of one man’s mastery of his chosen medium, of his obsession with the built environment of his home and of his transcendent combination of history and art.
Since its founding in 2012, the fund has focused on building a museum-quality collection of photographs taken in the American South since World War II.
