This February 15th art people adventured to New Orleans. We traveled by passenger train, bus, horse drawn carriage, trolley car, taxi, and frequently, OUR FEET.
The New Orleans Museum of Art was the site of great learning for teacher and student. Each of the students described, analyzed and interpreted art of the past and today. It was such a powerful time that when I turned around people were following the students, listening to them speaks as with authority.
On the final day, after days of Café Dumont, Mother’s, Huck Finn’s, Washington Avenue Dinner and Bubba Gump Shrimp, we ended up at Newcomb Gallery at Tulane University to see Kate Clark anamorphic art. As we listened to the gallery manager speak to us, the artist walked in! I could not speak. I was so grateful for the brilliant students who were able to pick up the discussion of the art.
