This week on Inside the Arts, we'll explore a bejeweled exhibit of modern art in NOMA's Great Hall, and a public-private partnership raises the barre with new opportunities for dance in the Crescent City.
Plus, a new fishing hole opens downtown (here's a hint: It's air conditioned!) and a local arts leader speaks at ESSENCE Festival. And, a cultural arts center pays homage to those lost during the Middle Passage.
Organizers have canceled Wednesday's display in New Orleans of the submarine that director James Cameron took to the deepest part of the ocean.
The Deepsea Challenger was set for public viewing outside the Audubon Aquarium, but a spokesman for the group transporting the submersible says traffic and space limitations made the one-day visit impossible.
The vehicle was driven by Cameron last year to the bottom of the Mariana trench in the western Pacific.
It’s on its way to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.
