The New Orleans Museum of Art is offering a glimpse at a fraction of its collection of photographs. Of the 10,000 pictures, 132 are on display. 

We spoke with curator Russell Lord about the exhibition — how NOMA built such an extensive collection, starting in the 1970s, and why. 

“The museum made then the very prescient decision to begin collecting photography, and that was a time when not many other museums were looking at photography and they weren’t collecting it. They weren’t building permanent collections," says Lord.

The Art of Rashaad Newsome: From King To Bling

Artist Rashaad Newsome's "Duke of NOLA" collage.
Rashaad Newsome Marlborough Chelsea, New York

A new exhibit at the New Orleans Museum of Art blends the traditions of the Middle Ages with a futuristic vision of pop culture.

The work of former New Orleans resident Rashaad Newsome takes a variety of forms. Lining the Great Hall of the New Orleans Museum of Art is a collection of intricate collages. Just how intricate is evident close-up. The updated gilded frames contain patterns that repeat thousands of modern images — like jewels and hubcaps — to appear as multi-layered coats of arms.
