<name>Lifelike</name>

<description>Organized by the Walker Art Center, Lifelike invites a close examination of artworks based on commonplace objects and situations, which are startlingly realistic, often playful, and sometimes surreal. This international group exhibition features artists variously using scale, unusual materials, and sly contextual devices to reveal the manner in which their subjects’ “authenticity” is manufactured. Avoiding the brand-name flashiness embraced by 1960s Pop and the slick urban scenes introduced at that time by the Photorealists, the artists in Lifelike investigate the quieter side of the quotidian, choosing potentially overlooked items or moments as subject matter: a paper bag, an eraser, an apple core, a waiting room, an afternoon nap. They also favor a handmade, labor-intensive practice rather than technological enhancements. The resulting works—including painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, and video—transform the ordinary into something beguiling, loaded with narrative and metaphor, and imbued with an arresting sense of humanity.

Lifelike showcases works from the late 1960s to the present over 50 artists, including Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, James Casebere, Vija Celmins, Keith Edmier, Fischli and Weiss, Kaz Oshiro, Charles Ray, Sam Taylor-Wood, and Ai Weiwei.</description>

<name>The Palm, the Pine and the Cypress: Newcomb Pottery of New Orleans</name>

<description>Founded in 1896 with a mission to train and employ young women as professional artists, the Newcomb College art pottery in New Orleans played an important role in the international Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century.

Newcomb artists drew inspiration from Louisiana’s native plants and wildlife to create the distinctive forms and patterns prized by collectors today. The Palm, the Pine, and the Cypress: Newcomb Pottery of New Orleans presents more than 50 glazed ceramics pieces paired with archival photographs documenting the pottery’s history through the 1940s.

The exhibition is housed in Madame John’s Legacy, built in 1788, and considered one of the finest examples of French Colonial architecture in North America.

Free admission with generous support of Friends of the Cabildo.</description>

<name>Ida Kohlmeyer: 100th Anniversary Highlights</name>

<description>In 1953, nearly sixty years ago, Ida Rittenberg Kohlmeyer submitted Cityscape – New Orleans to the Isaac Delgado Museum of Art Annual Juried Exhibition. While the painting did not win, as others would in ’57, ‘58, ’66, ’67, ’72 and ‘74, it represents the beginning of an enduring affiliation between Kohlmeyer and what would become the New Orleans Museum of Art.</description>

<name>Chandra McCormick & Keith Calhoun: Faces of Tremé/New Work</name>

<description>Preserving the cultural history of African American life in the south, Chandra McCormick and Keith Calhoun, native Lower 9th Ward photographers, have been documenting rural communities throughout Louisiana for more than 30 years. Following the beat of the Second Line into the heart of historic Tremé, the oldest African American community in the United States, McCormick and Calhoun have their ears to the ground and their eyes on the soul of their subjects. Their photographs exist as an archival memory of a ritualistic, vibrant and celebratory Tremé – a place that has birthed artists such as Kermit Ruffins, Trombone Shorty, Lionel (Uncle Lionel) Batiste, and the Rebirth Brass Band. Beyond documentation, their photographs bare witness to a changing demographic. McCormick and Calhoun’s images shed new light and honor the Indigenous families who make up the fabric of a unique historic Tremé.</description>

<description>Louisiana’s culture often seems to have sprung from its fertile soil. Out of the rich Louisiana sugar fields, New Orleans received a gift of lasting culture in early 1910, when sugar broker Isaac Delgado offered the city $150,000 to build a “temple of art for rich and poor alike” in City Park. The neo-classical, Beaux Arts-style Isaac Delgado Museum of Art opened in December 1911, but sadly, Delgado was too ill to attend. He died weeks later, and left yet another generous gift, an art collection gathered by his late aunt. Delgado’s 25,000-square-foot “temple” is still at the center of the now much larger New Orleans Museum of Art.

The Museum houses a $200 million collection in 46 galleries: European painting and sculpture from the 16th through 20th centuries; American painting and sculpture from the 18th and 19th centuries; European and American prints and drawings; Asian, African, Oceanic, Pre-Columbian, and Native American art; photography; and European and American decorative arts. Special collections include the Peter Carl Fabergé treasures and the Latin American Colonial collection. NOMA’s Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden has become the latest cultural destination for locals and a must-see for visitors to the Crescent City. The world-class collection of 50 modern and contemporary sculpture is presented in an incredible, five-acre natural setting with delights at every turn.

The Museum ranks among the top 25 percent of the nation’s largest and most significant museums, and is the premier art museum in the Gulf South region. Hundreds of thousands of visitors have passed through its doors to see landmark international exhibitions such as “The Quest for Immortality: Treasures of Ancient Egypt”, “Jefferson’s America & Napoleon’s France”, “The Treasures of Tutankhamun”, “The Search for Alexander the Great”, “The Art of the Muppets”, and “Monet: Late Paintings of Giverny from the Musé Marmottan.”

Admission is now FREE for Louisiana residents with proper ID through 2006. For out of town patrons, admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors 65 and older and full-time students with ID, $4 for children ages 3-17. Museum members and children younger than</description>
