The quantity and variety of art made in New Orleans can be overwhelming. And visitors to our city may not have the time they need to explore it all on their own. That got us thinking: How can we make New Orleans art accessible to people all over the world? And how can we help both visitors and locals find a direct path to the art that interests them most? The answer is Where Y’Art, a fun and easy way to experience the best of New Orleans art online and in person.
Here’s where you can find us in 2017
Where Y’Art curates an online gallery where you can meet over 100 New Orleans artists — from painters to sculptors, craftsmen and jewelry designers — discover their passions and learn their stories. It’s a 24-hour meeting place where the artist is always present and the wall space knows no limits.
