new orleans botanical garden

This week on Inside the Arts... a new sculpture garden honoring the works of a local art  icon opens in City Park. The Helis Foundation Enrique Alferez Sculpture Garden will open in the New Orleans Botanical Garden. We talk with City Park's Paul Soniat and Jessie Haynes with the Helis Foundation.
