Cool Art in New Orleans

New Orleans is a city full of music. But I found plenty of art to enjoy too, in the amazing warm days we had in mid-February. I couldn’t get a good image of all of the works I liked — I tried about ten times to get a decent picture of this fantastic and disturbing spider sculpture by Louise Bourgeois in the Besthoff Sculpture Garden in City Park, but failed. (Link is to a photo by Paul Moline on Panoramio.)

Here are a few of the works I liked.

Karma, a 23-foot-tell sculpture by Do Ho Suh at the Besthoff Sculpture gardens.
